Mum's Meatloaf

    1 hour

    This recipe is delicious and I have great fond childhood memories of it. I recently went out for a dinner in a local franchise pub and saw meatloaf with mustard mash on the menu, I instantly thought of my mum's meatloaf and promptly ordered it. I was disapponted as when it came out as i got 2 thinly sliced portions on a sloppy watery potato mash. I then emailed mum when I got home for the meatloaf recipe and look forward to the home made results and more fond memories of home.

    This was lovely, and very easy to make. I used all mince beef instead of sausage roll meat. It was a big success in my house, I'll definitely make it again.  -  21 Sep 2012


    Used different ingredients. I also added to this recipe some chopped red pepper and as i had no mustard i added 1/2 tsp chilli powder. I used italian pork mince too.This recipe is now gluten free too as my mince was 100% pork with no added wheat crumbs like alot of meat products have  -  05 Oct 2010


    Really good, straight forward and delicious recipe. I experimented a little with adding other things in like worcester sauce. Go nuts. It's a great base.  -  18 Oct 2010
