Ingredients
For the meatloaf:
225g lean minced beef
225g lean minced pork
50g fresh breadcrumbs
2 tbsp chopped fresh mixed herbs (parsley, thyme, oregano)
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 eating apple, grated
black pepper
For the onion gravy:
2 red onions, finely sliced
1 tsp runny honey
2–3 tsp gravy powder
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas 5. Mix all the meatloaf ingredients together in a large bowl and season to taste.
  2. Press the mixture into a 450g loaf tin. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 1¼ hours until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the onion gravy, heat a non-stick pan, add the onions and honey and dry-fry over a moderate heat until the onions start to brown. Add 300ml water and stir. Mix the gravy powder in a separate jug with 2 tbsp cold water and stir into the pan.
  4. Simmer gently to thicken, adding more water if required, then stir in the mustard and chives. Delicious poured over the meatloaf.
Chefs tips
  • You could make this in individual ramekins, which will cook more quickly in around 1 hour.
  • If you don’t have a loaf tin, mould the mixture into a loaf shape on a baking tray, cover the top and sides with foil and bake.
  • This can be made with all pork or all beef mince, if you prefer.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Defrost thoroughly in the fridge or microwave and reheat until piping-hot throughout.
