Herby Meatloaf

Serves 4


2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1 cup fresh spinach, chopped fine
2 green onions, chopped (including green parts)
½ cup fresh parsley leaves
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, chopped fine
2 tablespoons lemon thyme or regular thyme
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
¼-½ cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 tablespoons tabasco or hot sauce (Ger-Nis tabasco)
2 tablespoons ketchup
Chives for garnish


Pre-heat oven to 375°F. In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except the ketchup and mix very well! Place the mixture in a greased meta or glass loaf pan and glaze the top with ketchup using a pastry brush. Sprinkle some chopped herbs on the top (chives). Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until cooked through but not over cooked. Let stand about five minutes before slicing through in order to let the juices settle.
