Home Features Recipes MY MEATLOAF
Tuesday, 26 January 2010 16:22

I just had to  go with Sam Kekovich for this  month and choose a lamb recipe. Although the meatloaf below, really is equally good with beef, pork or veal mince – or a mixture – let’s go for lamb on this Australia Day.


It’s a lovely easy dish, stays moist, and is just as good hot as cold. You can put a layer of spinach and cheese in the middle if you like to add variety. The V8 juice thickens a little and is very nutritious and tasty.

Serves 4-6

600g (approximately) lean minced beef or lamb
2 eggs
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs
salt if desired
ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 cups V8 juice

Mix all ingredients together well in a large bowl. Shape into a loaf shape and place in a large greased baking dish. Heat V8 juice and pour over the loaf. Bake uncovered one hour at 190C.
