Make lunch with your leftovers and serve a slice of your loaf in this Meatloaf burger with harissa mayo recipe.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
