Recipe by Meggiebeth
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes and place in a small bowl. Pour the milk over the bread. Set aside for five minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic. Cook until soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool for five minutes.
  • Place carrots in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk and bread mixture, ground sirloin, ground pork, eggs, parsley, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Add onion mixture. Combine well using your hands or a rubber scraper.
  • Place mixture in a large ungreased baking dish or roasting pan. Shape into a 5 by 12 inch loaf. Overlap bacon slices across the top, covering the meat. Place potatoes and leeks around the loaf. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, ground mustard, and 2 tablespoons of water. Stie in tomato paste making a glaze. Brush the meat loaf all over with the glaze.
  • Bake, brushing every fifteen minutes with glaze until juices run clear when loaf is pierced with a two-pronged fork and bacon is crisp, 1 to 1 and 1/4 hours. Let cool 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with potatoes and leeks on the side.
