    looks great and another favorite of mine that I have not made in a while. After looking at yours I think it is time I make it again.
    My Mom use to put a couple of soft boiled eggs (shells removed of course) , by the time it was baked the eggs were hard boiled, and when you sliced the meatloaf you also got a slice of hard boiled egg with it. Even if you don't like egg, it makes for a nice presentation.
    I have not done it in a while , next time I do it I will post a picture.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    About 10 years ago I did a thread on meatloaf. Of course it was the one time the kids asked for fries instead of mash. One thing that goes nice with meatloaf and keeps it moist is bacon. My meatloaf is half pork half beef, plus onions, garlic and bell with the breadcrumbs and some egg to bind it all. Just a couple of shots. I remember SK asking for the complete recipe.

    I'd say meatloaf is one of those dishes with so many good ways to make it that there's no 1 recipe that has to be even loosely stuck to! Had a friend in the Philippines of Polish descent that use to make the best one I've tasted, always served with nothing more than mash and gravy. Should've gotten his recipe before he passed away

    I wanted to make Shepherd's Pie for dinner yesterday but took out the pack of minced beef from the freezer by mistake, instead of the minced lamb (incidentally, the Makros in Korat don't stock minced lamb but you can get it at Korat Chef, along with Thatcher's Cider).

    So, Cottage Pie it was!



    I added chopped up carrots, courgettes and of course a handful of peas with the mince while cooking. I made extra which I bagged up and froze... for a lasagne or spag bol at a later date.



    Nice and sloppy... lovely!

    Seems clear he's not bothered about shape, and neither would I be.

    Often too dry needing gravy or a sauce of some kind.

    My thoughts exactly. Sometimes the visual aspect of a dish is not important.

    ^ I like my Cottage Pie like I like my women!

    Edit: Before I met the good lady wife of course.

    Exactly, and a serving of cottage pie is never going to look great plated unless the mince has the consistency of concrete to keep everything upright and in a rectangular shape. It's all about the taste, and I bet Mendip's was delicious.
