  • Preparation Time30 mins
  • Cooking Time45 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyMedium
1 tbsp good olive oil
3 onions, finely chopped
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 tsp salt, or to taste
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
75ml chicken stock
1tbsp tomato puree
1.25kg good quality minced beef
125g toasted breadcrumbs
2 eggs
125ml tomato ketchup

1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas mark 4. Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown.
2) Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock and tomato puree. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl combine the minced beef, onion mixture, breadcrumbs and eggs. Mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meatloaf will be dense. 

3) Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions, shape each one into a small loaf and place on a baking tray. Spread about one tbsp of tomato ketchup on the top of each portion. 

4) Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the juices run clear when a sharp knife is inserted and the meat loaves are cooked through. Serve hot.
