Stuffed meatloaf with potatoes


For the stuffing

  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Cut the bell peppers into large pieces and add them to the pan.
  • Cut the ham into cubes, add it to the pan, and sauté.
  • Add the thyme, mix, and remove from the heat.
  • Leave the stuffing into the pan so that it loses all of its moisture.

For the meatloaf

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (356ο F) set to fan.
  • Add the ground beef into a bowl and add the onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, chili flakes, cumin, thyme, the parsley finely chopped, lemon zest, ketchup, salt, pepper, olive oil, eggs, and mix very well.
  • Transfer the ground beef’s mixture into plastic wrap and spread it well with your hands.
  • In the middle, spread the stuffing that is into the pan, and the kasseri cheese cut into thin slices.
  • Fold into a roll using the plastic wrap, and make sure that the stuffing is in the center of the meatloaf. Spread a little olive oil onto a piece of parchment paper and transfer the meatloaf, without the plastic wrap. Fold with the parchment paper, then with aluminum foil, and transfer onto a baking pan with a rack.
  • Cook for 1 hour. Then, remove the parchment paper and cook for 30 more minutes, until golden.

For the potatoes

  • Half an hour before we remove the meatloaf from the oven, prepare the potatoes.
  • Score the potatoes in a crisscross manner and press them lightly so that they open up and form a small cavity. 
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper and add the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, and divide the butter into each potato’s cavity.
  • Add rosemary leaves into each potato and roast for 20-30 minutes, until golden.

For the sauce

  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Finely chop the onion, the garlic, and add them to the pan. Add the sugar and let them caramelize.
  • Deglaze the pan with the vinegar, add the tomato paste, and mix until sautéed.
  • Add the canned tomatoes, water, chicken bouillon cube, then mix and boil for 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Add the basil finely chopped, pepper, and remove from the heat.
  • Beat with an immersion blender until there is a smooth sauce.
  • Sprinkle with basil, pepper, drizzle olive oil, and serve.
