For tea tonight, Very Nice mince from the farmers' market. Bored of my default meatballs; had spaghetti (carbonara) last night so no enthusiasm for spag Bol. My children dislike lasagne (plus pasta again). Just don't fancy shepherd's pie...any brilliant and jnteresting ideas before I give in to my Scottish husband and have mince and tatties?
I mix the mince with a beaten egg, a handful of fresh breadcrumbs, some mixed herbs, salt and pepper, garlic and a tablespoon of tomato puree, 1/2 tsp mustard and a finely chopped onion (you can add pork sausagemeat too if you have some sausages in the house), mix with your hands, then press into a greased loaf tin, bake for about 1 hr 30 mins or until cooked through at 180 degrees C.
Lovely served with onion gravy, baked potatoes and broccoli.
Another vote for meatloaf, I'm really into it at the moment. We're doing blw with ds2 and it's so easy for him to eat. I add in grated carrot and/or apple too. You can use cooked quinoa instead of breadcrumbs if you want to up the protein.
It's great with mash and gravy, or served with a homemade tomato sauce and risotto Milanese.
