Bloomsbury Meatloaf


Oh my...delicious!

Steaming hot Bloomsbury Meatloaf featured in the glass container it was baked in.

1.5 pounds ground lamb

3/4 cup oats (not instant)

1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped

1 egg

1/4 cup of your favorite, thick BBq sauce

salt/pepper to taste

4 slices of black forest ham

3/4 cup grated cheese, use your favorite/blend

2 small cans tomato paste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix the first 6 ingredients well, in a large mixing bowl.  Go ahead, take your rings off and use your hands.  Turn the meat mixture out onto a rectangle of waxed paper or foil.  Flatten the meat mixture out to a 8 x 12 rectangle.  Place the ham down the middle of the meat mixture.  Place the cheese down the middle of the ham.  If you like lots of veges…place chopped bell pepper, chopped mushrooms, asparagus spears, capers, artichoke hearts…whatever you like, down the center of the cheese.   Just be sure your 8 x 12 meat mixture will roll up/seal around your ham/cheese/veges.  Pull up one side of paper/foil to center of mixture; pull up other side of paper/foil to center of mixture…press the to meat mixture sides together to form a seal.  Fold up the ends to be sure all the “extras” are sealed in.  Place your 9 x 13 baking dish over the sealed folds.  Run your hand under the foil and flip the meat mixture and dish at the same time –  wow, you have your meatloaf, seam side down in your baking dish.  Cover the top of your meatloaf with tomato paste…as thick as desired.  Bake 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes…until the tomato paste is a deep-deep red/brown.  Remove from oven, rest for 7.3 minutes and serve piping hot!  Delicious will be the only compliment coming from your dinner guests!
