Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Put bread in processor and blitz to make crumbs, then tip into a bowl with the pork. Tip the onion, garlic and herbs into the food processor and process until finely chopped. Add to the bowl with the Parmesan and egg. Finely chop 2 slices of the prosciutto and add to the mix with some salt and pepper. Mix well with a fork or your hands.
  2. Use the rest of the prosciutto to line a 1.5 litre loaf tin. Spoon in the meatloaf mix and press down well. Flip the overhanging prosciutto over the top, then put the loaf tin into a roasting tray. Pour hot water from the kettle into the roasting tray to come halfway up the loaf tin and bake for 1 hr until loaf shrinks from the sides of tin.
  3. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then drain off any excess liquid and turn out onto a board. Cut into thick slices and serve warm or cold with salad.

Just had this for my dinner and it was absolutely beautiful! Took about 5 mins to prepare then left it in the oven for an hour - easy! I added a bit more parmesam (about 6 tbsp) and 2 cloves of garlic, and used streaky bacon. It was lovely - I;m looking forward to having some tomorrow for lunch!

This is a great recipe. Easy to make and very nice served hot. Then extremely nice served cold. Delicious and thoroughly recommended.

My 1st time making meatloaf. My husband thought it was tasty! The parsley really brought out the flavour of the pork and I added more oregano. Easy to make. I am not a meat fan and thought it was quite good, too.

made this with minced turkey to reduce fat content, added some grated lemon rind, then served it hot with an onion sauce...Yummy!

made this meat loaf several times and I must admit I prefer it cold it just gets tastier each time I make it. my grandsons love it. added it to my binder as I pass my Good Food Mg on to my daughter in law. Thinking of making 2 next time one for the freezer but is it better frozen uncooked or cooked

I've never really liked meatloaf, so when my neighbour made this recipe a few weeks ago and I had a leftover slice in a sandwich the next day I was amazed at how delicious it was - so much so that I made it for my family as part of Easter Sunday lunch, in fact I made 2 because I knew it could be popular and indeed it was! Really easy, incredibly tasty and very versatile. Will definitely make again.

I made this yesterday and it was really tasty. I changed and added other things because looking at the ingredients thought it might be a bit bland. I used smoked streaky bacon and added dried coriander and a bit more garlic and more parmesan cheese. The result was 'a lot tastier'. I will definately make it again.

This is great - It was nice hot but I preferred it cold. Well worth making.

I've been using this receipe since Sept 2006 and my two boys, aged 3 & 5, love it! My eldest son has an egg allergy, so I just leave out the egg and add grated apple for moisture. I've just had to look it up because I can't find my copy.

HELP!
