Meat Loaf

from Georgie Adamson’s parents’ days

This was one of Dad’s specialities and made for family get-togethers where it was mainly served cold with Mum’s home-made relish or tomato sauce.

Mix together in a large bowl:

500g finely minced steak, 250g sausage meat, ½ cup bacon pieces chopped finely, ½ cup breadcrumbs, 1 large onion finely chopped, 2 tsp salt, pepper to taste, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbs tomato sauce and 1 egg. Finely chopped parsley or herbs may be added. Add a little water or milk to moisten.

I do recall Dad mincing the ingredients all together in the old meat grinder.

Mix all thoroughly and form into a loaf shape. Cook in a greased loaftin covered and cook for 1-1½ hours in a moderate oven.

Cool well before serving. Great left overnight in the refrigerator.
