- 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
- 1 tbsp tomato purée

Useful to have…
- Digital probe thermometer
- Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/gas 3½. In a large bowl, combine all the meatloaf ingredients except the oil and serving suggestions. Using your hands is easiest for this – be careful not to overwork the meat. Fry a small piece of the mixture and taste to check the seasoning, then adjust it before shaping the mixture into a loaf shape. Put on a baking tray greased with a little olive oil, then bake for 45 minutes.
- Mix the ketchup and hot sauce to make the glaze, then brush thickly over the top of the meatloaf. Return to the oven for 15 minutes more or until cooked through – it should read 70°C in the centre when tested with a digital probe thermometer.
- Rest the meatloaf for 5 minutes, still on its tray. Slice and serve with mashed potatoes and your choice of vegetables or salad.
Meatloaf demands red wine. Make it a ripe, juicy California merlot.
