I’m not sure how I came up with this recipe years ago. All I remember is that we had some ground lamb and we felt like having meat loaf. I need to point out that the best flavor results come when grass-raised meat is used, we get ours from US Wellness Meats. Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you, it’s amazing and is so tasty that it makes my mouth water just writing this!
You will need:
- 1 pound ground Lamb
- 1 cup homemade bread crumbs or crushed crackers
- 1 egg
- 1/2 onion, diced
- optional: 1 tomato, diced
Put egg into a large bowl with the bread crumbs, mix together well with a fork. Add onions and lamb, mix together (tip: I do not mix well because I don’t care for the texture when it is over-mixed). Add fresh tomato now if you like.
Pour the mixture in the bowl into a baking pan and form into a nice loaf shape.
Bake at 325*F for 50-55 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let rest for 5 minutes, slice, serve and enjoy!
Fun Fact: When we cook with grass-raised meats we do not drain off any of the fat. Grass-raised animals tend to be less fatty and because they are grass-rasied they are literally a different animal. Meaning that when animals are allowed to eat their ‘natural’ diet the nutritional content is vastly different than conventionally-raised and even organically-raised meats. Grass-raised animal meats go way beyond organic meats (see Organic Certification: is it all it’s cracked up to be?) and have a proper ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, these ARE good for us to eat! Many don’t realize that conventional meat and even organic meats; the animals never get to eat their natural diet, as such the meat we eat from them is extremely unbalanced and unhealthy. Thus, we happily eat the fat too, just the way Mother Nature intended us to eat!
