Mum's Meatloaf - A fond memory of my childhood...

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.  Mostly here in Windsor we have had a very mild winter, but I know many of you have been having snow and storms and at this time of year we are all craving some comfort food.

I have fond childhood memories of on such days eating my Mum's meatloaf.  She would serve it up with a steaming pile of buttery mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables and now I make it for my son and he loves it too.

The recipe is also very versatile, while my mother only used it to make meatloaf, it also makes delicious meatballs and burgers.  So I thought I would share the recipe with you all, my Mum's Meatloaf...

Mum's Meatloaf


500g beef mince
5 or 6 lincolnshire sausages (skinned)
Tomato ketchup (1-2 tbsp)
Brown Sauce (1-2 tbsp)
1 onion (finely chopped)
Salt & pepper to taste
1 egg

  • Preheat oven to 180℃
  • In a large bowl add all the ingredients and with your hands mix everything together, give it a really good squidge
  • Place the meatloaf mix into a loaf tin, or simply form into shape and place on a roasting tray
  • Cook for 45 mins
  • Best served with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables and gravy

If you are not from the UK and don't know what Brown Sauce is, it kind of has the same consistency as tomato ketchup only brown.  The flavour is similar to Worcester Sauce, maybe slightly sweeter.  You could substitute a dash of worcester Sauce if you don't have any.

Pin it for later...

I hope you will give this recipe a try, it really is delicious and if you do be sure to let me know in the comments below.

See you soon...
