|Perhaps the ultimate East meets West fusion recipe, this meatloaf dish was inspired by a sushi roll. By rolling the ground meat around a layer of goat cheese like a jelly roll, the cheese is layered into the centre of the meatloaf.
||ground beef (I used ½ beef, ½ lamb)|
||goat cheese round, plain|
||Italian seasoning (or parsley & oregano)|
||ketchup or tomato paste|
|1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a loaf pan. |
|2. Mix the 1st 7 ingredients together. Do not over mix. Pat meat mixture into a square (about 10") on a piece of plastic wrap, wax paper, or foil. |
|3. Put goat cheese in a small bowl and mix with butter and seasonings. Blend into a paste. Spread the goat cheese mixture across the top of the meat in a neat stripe (about 3" from the top). |
|4. Roll like a giant sushi roll (don't get the foil caught in the roll!). Gently place in a casserole dish. Spread ketchup or tomato paste on the top of the loaf. |
|5. Bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes to an hour until done.
