I found the original recipe in a recipe booklet published by a supermarket chain. It's very basic and a good midweek main meal. I changed the recipe to my taste, as the original was too bland. Once you have the few ingredients at hand it's easy to make. It's also a good recipe to make ahead, as the flavours will definitely improve over a day or so. The original recipe suggested ground ostrich meat or chicken as a good alternative to beef. Most of our shops sell dried breadcrumbs, which is what I used.
Don't be put off by "terrine" in the title: this is a very easy dish, which might make people think you've gone to a lot of trouble! I am not sure how long this takes to make as I have never bothered to time it.
This is so tasty! So authentic! So easy! It just gets better the longer it sets. I like to make mine the day before. This doubles and triples well. If you are a meatless family, just substitute 2 1/2 pounds of zucchini for the meat. I wait until just about the last minute before I stir in the basil leaves, torn into small pieces, as it gets "tired" if you put it in any earlier. Also use your fingers to break up the basil, minus the stems, cutting it bruises the leaves and they will turn black.
The ONLY meatloaf I could eat prior to this one was my Mamma's. One of my Russian interpreters invited me to dinner one night and she served this one. It was so good I immediately had her translate the recipe. I've tried it here in the U.S. and it's just as good. Makes excellent meatloaf sandwiches!
Credit goes to Ian Hewitson - Huey's Cooking Adventures. (An Aussie cooking show) A little fiddley...but worth it! And economical too. Served with some green beans on the side, or on its own, its a complete meal. You can use beef mince but lamb works best.
A lightly spiced & fruity North African inspired dish with a tasty vegetable accompaniment or company as the title says! Made with easily available ingredients & it is also very adaptable. This recipe is a complete meal, but you could if you wish, serve it alongside steamed rice or couscous. Flatbreads would also be ideal, especially for mopping up all the lentils & spicy juices.
This recipe is from Thailand: The Beautiful Cookbook, by far my favorite Thai cookbook. It is a ground beef curry, which seems fairly unique. I use frozen cut green beans and frozen mixed peppers, so it is quick and easy to make with staple ingredients. I doubled it as it only calls for 8 oz of ground beef.
This is a simple recipe that is really good, kids of all ages enjoy this, my DH loves this! to save time you can use frozen fries, I use recipe#139851 I prefer homemade to frozen. You can really season your ground beef anyway you desired, I like to add in a green bell pepper and jalapeno for some heat.
I got this out of a Campbells Soup Cookbook many many years ago, and have adapted it a bit to make it even yummier. Easy to make, Inexpensive, and Comforting! One of my husband's favorites. I make this at least once a week for the last thirty years. Serve with some homemade mashed potatoes.
This is one of my family's favorite baked bean recipes, it's an easy recipe but big on flavor, and you can adjust all ingredients to taste ;-) The grated cheddar cheese is optional but I like to sprinkle it on towards the end of baking. I have even added in cooked el dente macaroni pasta.
