Now Autumn is well and truly here thoughts turn to comfort food and one of the best is meatloaf. This recipe is loosely based on one of Ina Gartans. She used turkey mince but regular turkey mince isn’t free on slimming world although turkey breast mince is free thought it might be a bit dry so used extra lean pork mince.
The cooked onion mixture makes the meatloaf really savoury and I left out the breadcrumbs to save syns and don’t think you really notice the difference . I served this with bisto best onion gravy 2. 1/2 syns for 142ml and veg and another comfort food my version of sour cream and chive mashed potato (recipe to follow another day : )
500g extra lean pork mince
1 large onion (chopped)
1 chicken stock cube dissolved in 150ml boiling water
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp tomato purée
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 egg (beaten)
Spray oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Spray a small frying pan with spray oil and fry the onions gently sprinkled with salt until onions are soft.
Add stock, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, tomato purée and pepper and simmer until almost all the stock has absorbed (see pic for details) Leave to cool for a few minutes .
Place mince in a bowl with the beaten egg and add the onion mixture and mix very well.
Line a baking dish with foil and place mixture on and shape into a loaf shape.
Bake on gas 6/200/400 for 1 hour.
