Mom’s meatloaf….need I say more!?!

image of meatloaf I am usually not fond of meatloaf, unless I know who’s made it & what’s gone into it, since sometimes it feels like polony or spam, where everything but the kitchen sink has gone into it.

However, I make an exceptional to this truly moist, tasty dish.
It contains only the goodness of great ingredients.
It’s quick.
It’s easy.
And it can be used in so many ways….


  • 1 onion
  • 1kg mince (can be a mix of different types of minced meat or just one type like beef, pork, chicken, lamb)
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) cream or full cream milk
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs

How to make?

  1. Place all the ingredients into a bowl.  Now mix well with your hands.
  2. Press into a loaf/bread tin (or another oven proof dish), and put into a roasting pan.  The dish used needs to fit into a roasting pan.
  3. Pour boiling water into the roasting pan (i.e. your meatloaf dish is surrounded by water at it’s sides)
  4. Bake at 180 degrees celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for about 1 hour.  If the water boils away, add more water to the roasting pan.
  5. After an hour, remove from oven and remove your dish from the roasting pan.  Serve with a salad or vegetables.  Can even use it as a form or “bread” the next day & slice and put cheese & tomato between it.
    Another idea, is make round meatballs with the mixture, and place into a dish, that’s placed into a roasting pan, to bake in the oven (i.e. use the same process described above)…great then over zucchini spaghetti, or to use in lunchbox treats.
