Makes: 1 doner meat loaf

  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr20min  ›  Extra time:10min resting  ›  Ready in:1hr45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
  2. Blend the herbs, flour and spices together in a large bowl.
  3. Add the lamb mince and knead until all the herbs and spices are mixed into the lamb mince.
  4. Take the mixture and roll into a ball, then roll on a cutting board into a roly-poly type shape.
  5. Bake on a rack or grill in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes.
  6. Take out of the oven or the grill and cover in tin foil. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  7. Once rested, cut and serve.


I tend to find that cutting is best done with an electric knife to get thin slices.

Serving suggestion

Serve with salad and chips or wedges.
