Now I hear you, Oh no not meat loaf again, but this meat loaf a world away from what you are use to, I got base for this recipe for a grandmother of a Greek landlord we had back in the !980’s she was 97 back than so R.I.P Yana Katmatos, we love your meat loaf , I have cut the amount of garlic in the recipe and increased the amount of pepper , and red capsicum instead of just green. Servings 8

Ingredients that is what you need.
? cup pine nuts
1kg lean ground lamb
½ green capiscum, fine diced
½ red capsicum, fine diced
1 onion, fine diced
2 clove garlic, minced +
2 lg eggs
2 tsp ground pepper
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried rosemary
½ tsp salt
150g feta cheese, crumbled
200g of can diced tomato
1 garnishes: dried parsley
-fresh preferably

Cook pine nuts in a shallow frypan at 170 degrees Celsius. stirring
occasionally, 5 minutes or until toasted not burnt.

COMBINE pine nuts and ingredients except the can con tomatoes; press half of mixture into a lightly greased 23cm X 13cm loaf-pan. Sprinkle with feta cheese, and press remaining lamb mixture over cheese. So the feta is locked up inside the meat loaf.

BAKE at 190 degrees Celsius. for 1 ½ hours; remove from pan, and place on a rack in a broiler pan to catch any juice the will run over the sides, trust me it saves you cleaning your oven.. Pour tomato sauce over top; bake 10 more minutes or until done. Garnish, if desired.

Serve with toasted pita or turkish bread & yes a nice Greek salad look back in back-iusse of the Argus for what is in this salad and yes if go well with chips but try spraying with olive oil and baking instead of deep frying.
Happy eating Mick.
