      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Tin & Oven Preparation
  1. Describe the preparation steps of your recipe

  2. Preheat oven to 180.


    Line a loaf tin with baking paper covering base and all sides with paper and allowing paper to extend well beyong the edges of the tin.


    Line the base and sides of the tin with five of the slices of bacon reserving the remaining slices for the top.

  3. Meat Preparataion
  4. Add the linseed to the bowl and mill on speed 9 for 10 seconds.


    Add the garlic, onion, flat leef parsley, carrot, zuchinni, celery, salt, and pepper to the bowl and chop speed 7 for 5 seconds.  Scape down bowl and chop another 5-10 seconds speed 5-7 if necessary.


    Add the mince and eggs and mix 20 seconds on speed 5 until fully incorporated, use spatula to help mix it.

    Push the meat mixture into the tin on top of the bacon lining the base (and sides if you have chosen to do this).  Lay the remaining bacon rashes on top of the meat mixture tucking the ends in so none extends beyond the sides of the tin.


    Place the meat into the preheated oven for 25 minutes.


  5. Glaze
  6. Place all glaze ingredients into the bowl and mix on speed 3-4 for 10 seconds.


    After the meat has cooked for 25 minutees remove the meat from the oven, tip out pan juices and top with the prepared glaze.


    Place back into the oven for another 25 minutes or until cooked.  Use a thermometer into the loaf to check that it has reached 70 degrees when cooked. I needed to cook for another 10minutes to reach this.


  7. Sitting and Serving
  8. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and allow to sit (leaving it in the juices to retain the moisture) for 10 minutes before carving and serving with some salad or roasted vegetables.
