- Preheat the oven to 360ºF/180ºC.
- Take a few slices of bacon and use them to line the base and two long sides of a 500g/1lb loaf tin. Finely chop the remaining bacon and set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the onion, garlic, tomato purée, mustard, paprika, and egg with some seasoning and mix thoroughly.
- Add the finely chopped bacon and ground beef and mix together well. Spoon the meat mixture into the bacon-lined loaf tin and cover tightly with tinfoil. Bake in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow the meatloaf to stand for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the vegetables in lightly salted boiling water or steam for 8–10 minutes and drain.
- Remove the tinfoil from the meatloaf, drain off any liquid, and discard. Invert the meatloaf onto a chopping board or platter and cut into 8 slices. Serve slices of meatloaf with the accompanying vegetables.
Tip: Tip: The meatloaf can be cooked immediately or stored in the fridge uncooked for up to a day until ready to cook. Or it can be cooked, cooled, and kept for up to 2 days in the tin and reheated when needed.
