500g pack beef mince (avoid very cheap packs; use one with less than 20% fat)
Make lunch with your leftovers and serve a slice of your loaf in this Meatloaf burger with harissa mayo recipe.
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and
oil the inside of a 900g loaf tin. Tip the
stuffing mix into a bowl, crumble in the
stock cube and pour over 300ml boiling
water. Give it a good stir, then set aside.
Stretch the bacon rashers a little by
running the back of a spoon along their
length, then use 6-7 to line the base and
longest sides of the tin. Chop the rest.
Mix the chopped bacon and mince
into the stuffing with some black pepper,
then press into the bacon-lined tin and
bake for 40 mins until firm. Turn out
and serve sliced.
