1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
250 g beef mince
450 g sausage meat

Beef and Bean Meatloaf


  • Lightly grease a 23cm x 13cm loaf tin. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Cook the onion and garlic in a dash of oil over medium heat until the onion softens. Remove from heat and place in a bowl to cool.
  • Add beef mince, sausage meat, breadcrumbs, Wattie’s Baked Beans, Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, thyme and parsley and mix together until well combined.
  • Turn meat mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Press mixture firmly into the tin and smooth the top. Cover with foil.
  • Bake meatloaf for 45 minutes. Remove foil and brush the top with Wattie’s Tomato Sauce. Return to the oven and cook a further 5 minutes until top is glazed.
  • Drain off any fat residue and allow to rest in the tin for 10 minutes to firm up before turning out onto a serving plate. Cut into thick slices. Serve with creamy mashed potato, seasonal vegetables and extra tomato sauce or try serving cold with salad or as a sandwich filling.
  • Tip!
