Spicy Lamb Loaf

Yield: 6 or more servings.


This lamb loaf is a tasty twist on beef meat loaf. Sometimes I add some ground veal for a more subtle flavor.


2 pounds ground lean lamb
1 tablespoon corn, peanut, or vegetable oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup finely diced celery
1 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or more if desired)
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1/2 cup fine fresh bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Put meat in a mixing bowl and set aside.

3. Heat oil in a pan and add onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are wilted. Set aside to cool briefly.

4. Add cooked vegetables to meat. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, mustard, bread crumbs, and egg. Blend well with the fingers.

5. Pack mixture into a 6-cup loaf pan. Smooth the top.

6. Place the pan in the oven and bake 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
