Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Place the bread cubes into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and milk together and pour onto the breadcrumbs. Set the mixture aside for 15 minutes to soften and then mash with a fork until well combined.

  2. Add the Dijon mustard, seasoning, herbs, onion, celery, and bacon lardons. Finally, add the minced lamb, pork, Worcestershire sauce and mix until well combined. Chill overnight, or for at least two hours.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  4. Once chilled, pack the mixture into a 20cm x 13cm/8in x 5in (2lb) loaf tin. Place the streaky bacon slices on top of the meatloaf and cook for 1½ hours, or until cooked through.

  5. Remove from the oven and allow it to stand for five minutes before slicing.

  6. Serve with mash, greens and gravy
