Spicy Garlicky Meatloaf

I have adapted the recipe to make it bigger as I wanted leftovers for the week, so you will need a large loaf tin for this one (I poured in eight cups of water into my tin, so if you are able to do the same then you know your tin is large enough). Into the mix I also included rindless shortcut bacon as it adds a gorgeous flavour.

Using the Thermomix certainly helps with all the chopping, and you do not need to wash the bowl between each process … just clean it once at the end.

I did not mince my meat in the Thermomix as I wanted a chunky texture so I used pre-ground free range minced pork and beef. Get the best quality that you can afford, as it really will make a difference to your end result.

Great served hot or cold … it's especially great for picnics or large gatherings.
