Minced beef always features one way or another on our weekly menu here. The kids love mince meat so the challenge for me is to just get different ways of making it.
Someone on twitter shared this meatloaf recipe a few weeks ago, and I though it was worth a try. It was my first time making meatloaf and I think I will make it again given the happy and sated responses from my gang. Let’s get started shall we?
Grease your loaf pan and preheat your oven to 180°C.
In a large bowl, add your meat and add one finely diced onion, minced garlic, a tsp each of black pepper, dried mixed herbs, ground dhania jeera, Worcestershire sauce, salt, one egg, one cup of breadcrumbs and salt. Mix well then add to the greased loaf pan.
I think it came out quite well for a first try right?
Food makes me happy. I love preparing it, cooking and of course the eating part.
Potatoes in all their different forms are one of my favourite comfort foods. Be they boiled, fried, baked, mashed, whole or in wedges, I just love them!
I like shepherd’s pie as it is easy to whip up, delicious and filling, hence a favourite with the kids and adults. And the best part is the recipe is not cast in stone; you can play around with the filling and spices as you wish.
The Irish potatoes here are a bit different, waxy in nature therefore don’t fluff as much when mashed. But they are still a yummy treat. The filling was beef mince, peas, carrots and a handful of corn.
