Hearty winter meatloaf with tomato sauce recipe

Now that the weather is getting colder, a good serving of meatloaf can warm you right up. That, and I had some bread to use up. I’ve adapted this recipe over time from the BBC Good Foods hot or cold meatloaf recipe, as I prefer my meatloaves a bit nuttier and slightly herbier, but with less onions. The tomato sauce compliments the meatloaf really well, so I’ve included it here.

This will serves 4 people. Prep time is roughly 15 minutes, and it will need 1 hour in the oven.

1 egg

2 vine tomatoes
3 tbsps of tomato sauce
