Festive Meatloaf

Following the resounding success of my festive turkey stuffing, approved by 100% of all who tasted it, I have undertaken to continue my ginger zing odyssey by creating a festive meatloaf.

My masterpiece.



  • 500 g lean steak mince
  • 500 g pork sausage meat (squeezed from good pork sausages)
  • 1 cup turkey breast cut into chunks
  • 1 cup ham off the bone cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red capsicum, diced
  • 1 tsp each of sage, thyme, rosemary, cumin
  • 1 tsp whole peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, mace and allspice
  • 1 Tbsp each of chilli sauce and mushroom soy
  • 1/4 cup each of pine nuts, pepitos and slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup candied ginger, slivered
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 egg

Mix all ingredients very thoroughly, place in a greased loaf tin and bake at 170 deg. C fanbake for 40 minutes.


Update: the next day.

It is even nicer chilled and much easier to slice.IMG_3484.JPG


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
