When I was at secondary school I had my first cooking lessons in Home Economics, it was fantastic, a whole classroom had been kitted out into mini kitchens and we worked two to a kitchen.
I am sure that all of my class would be able to make the basic recipes that we learnt in those afternoon lessons, one of the first recipes we were ever given was a meatloaf recipe and it dawned on me the other day what a great staple this is for the summer as meatloaf can be eaten hot or cold, with sauce and vegetables on a plate or it makes the perfect picnic snack cut up into bite size pieces.
I took a look at my 1980’s basic recipe of mince, onion, egg and breadcrumbs and I took it one step further to make it even more tasty. I’m really pleased with the outcome and can assure you it is still as simple as it always was and cooks in an hour in the oven.
I’m sure you can adapt it too to include your favourite ingredients
I’m including this recipe in the Morrisons ‘Light Summer Family Meals’ category[yumprint-recipe id=’35’]
