Christmas Meatloaf

Christmas Meatloaf

This is my family's Christmas meatloaf. It's very easy but looks gorgeous. It's great for birthdays parties.


[a] Ground meat
500 g
Frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 cup
Panko (soak in milk)
1 cup
Baby cheese
1 teaspoon
Pepper, allspice etc.
a pinch
Onion (mice and saute)
Bacon (cut in half)
4~5 slices
Carrots, cherry tomatoes, okura, radish etc.
as needed
[b] Meat sauce, sauce, soy sauce
as needed


1. Combine [a] well.
2. In a savarin ring mold, place the bacon diagonally, like ribbons. Then fill the mold with the meat mixture.
3. Bake in a 180℃ oven for 30 minutes. Adjust the baking time/temperature if necessary.
4. When the juices run clear when poked with a toothpick, it's done.
5. Tilt the mold over a pan and drain the drippings onto the pan. On a large plate, flip the mold and take out the meatloaf. Be careful not to break it.
6. Decorate with the vegetables of your choice. If you are using carrots or okura, cook before use.
7. Add [b] in the pan with drippings and combine. Pour the sauce in the center of the meatloaf. Adjust the seasonings of the sauce as you like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I like to serve dishes with a "Christmas feel" to them on Christmas. Make rice balls in snowman's shape, and shape the potato salad into a Christmas tree. Then you'll have a dinner table covered in a Christmas-inspired feast!
