COOK'S NOTES FOR AMERICAN MEATLOAF RECIPE

The sausages used in this recipe should be good quality ones with plenty of flavour - we used Cumberland sausages.

For the breadcrumbs use stale white bread with the crusts removed. If you only have fresh bread, slightly toast it and then crumble into breadcrumbs.

When the meatloaf is cooked, let it cool for a bit and then use the edges of the greaseproof paper to pull it from the loaf tin. Cut the paper from the sides of the meatloaf leaving the paper on the base.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Add the oil to a frying pan on a medium to low heat and mix in the carrots, onions and celery. Let the vegetables fry gently for 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until they are softened.

Add the thyme, Tabasco Sauce and chilli flakes and stir in for two minutes. Place the cooked vegetables in a large bowl and let them cool for five minutes.

STEP 2

Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl except the sugar and 4 tablespoons of the tomato ketchup. Mix all the ingredients very well with your hands.

Add the mixture to the lined loaf tin. Now mix the sugar and remaining tomato ketchup together with a fork and spread it over the uncooked meatloaf.

STEP 3

Place the meatloaf in the re-heated oven for 45 minutes.

When cooked remove from the oven and let the meatloaf cool for five minutes. Remove the meatloaf from the loaf tin and trim away the greaseproof paper (see Cook's Notes above). Serve your meatloaf warm or cold.
