Check to see if the centre is cooked about halfway through. If the top is browning too quickly, loosely cover with tinfoil. As an alternative to using a loaf tin, roll into a rough ball and cover with pork caul fat then place in a roasting tin uncovered.
Right ladies and gents ... I have just made this loaf, very nice! As you may see from pictures I have uploaded I did not use the tin, but it is very important to compact it very well with both hands, shape into a form, put on an vegetable oil greased tray, add a half inch of cold water and bake, baste it every 15 minutes. Yummy! I had 1kg of pork shoulder, minced at home ... 125gr bread crumbs 1 egg (helps it to combine) 1.5 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of black pepper 3 teaspoons of fresh finely chopped sage 1/4 red hot chili powder. - 08 Feb 2014
A very nice, easy, tasty recipe. The only other recipe I've ever seen for Haslet replaces the red chilli with cayenne pepper and also added a good pinch of nutmeg. I added some smoked ham to the mix, purely because I had some left over from making sandwiches. I eat half of it served hot with mashed potatoes and onion gravy. The other half is for sannies with a nice tomato and chilli relish. - 09 Dec 2012
