This is a twist on the traditional meatloaf! A lamb loaf is made with a generous amount of parsley and onion, and seasoned elegantly with lemon zest and allspice. Serve with pita bread or rice.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
- 3 medium onions, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
- 2 teaspoons ground allspice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 medium tomato, sliced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the parsley, onions, lamb, allspice, lemon zest, salt and butter until well blended. Use your hands for best results. Place in a baking dish, or pat into a 2 inch tall round on a baking sheet with sides. Arrange tomato slices on top.
Bake uncovered for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until no longer pink and the internal temperature has reached at least 160 degrees F (72 degrees C). Serve with pita bread or rice.
