The Yummiest Meatloaf Ever

When I saw the Greek meatloaf Peter over at Kalofagas had made a while back, I had to make it the very same day!

I've now made it twice and each time I've served it with lemon roasted potatoes, which, I must say seem to look very pale in this picture.


I didn't mess about with the recipe at all - I followed it very nearly almost exactly! All the ingredients were followed as Peter says to in his recipe here.

I only used one slice of bread for the breadcrumbs, then added them to the mixture and poured the wine over the bread instead of soaking the bread in water. Also, I didn't have a sausage to go in the middle and I made the loaf in a bread tin, just for quickness. 

Here it is pictured at the stage where the bacon that was placed over the top has crisped up a bit after being in the oven.

The tomato sauce is then poured on top and the meatloaf then goes back to the oven to cook further.

I must say this was one really yummy meatloaf - thank you Peter. 


  1. Im on a quest to find a really good meatloaf recipe will try this

  2. Jan, I'm not surprised you loved this dish, it's becoming one of my faves too!

    I must say, I like the look of those potatoes...I see the crispy parts.

  3. I had bookmarked that one to try as well. A meatloaf with bacon, sausage and tomato sauce would be really tasty!

  4. This sounds like a wonderful meatloaf, and so much more interesting than lots of other recipes. It looks delicious.

  5. looks like a comfort food to me... yum... :)

  6. Tasty looking meatloaf Jan. I have an old standby I have been making for years from my Fanny Farmer cooking school cook book. I may give this a try as it sounds very delicious and your tasty pictures confirm that assumption!

  7. This sounds like such a homey dish Jan and perfect for a little comfort this time of the year.

  8. I love meatloaf! This is a great version, and I like how you used wine! I'd love to hear more about your lemon roasted potatoes, too! YUM!

  9. By the way I don't know what is meatloaf and I happy to lean to know westerner food from your blog Jan. Thank you for sharing. Well, at least I know your fresh tomato sauce and I love it.
    Have a great weekend Jan,
