Lebanese Lamb Loaf

I will never, ever, ever, EVER post a meatloaf recipe on this blog.  NEVER.  For one, it’s not exactly a complicated recipe and I sincerely doubt I’m cheating anyone out of a good meal.  Google it, you’ll be OK.  For another, my very dear husband has refined his mother’s recipe into such Foodgasmic Meatloaf Perfection that I have absolutely zero desire to make anything else.  And zero desire to share it with the general public.  Sorry, guys.

However!!!  This isn’t your typical meatloaf–it’s a LambLoaf.  With all kinds of fun stuff baked in to give it a distinct and exotic flavor…and a sweet carmelized glaze on top…**SWOON**

Way too exotic for Sunday Supper.  In fact, I made it on a Thursday.  Booyah.

This recipe was actually the result of a few botched attempts at making kibbeh, believe it or not…I mean, kibbeh are just mini stuffed meatloaves and I pretty much said f*ck it and made a big one.  Sometimes, you just need a big block of meat.  Whatever, I was tired.

Ingredients

2 lbs Ground Lamb

1 lb Ground Beef

1/2 c Pine Nuts

1/2 c Dates

1 Sweet Onion, diced

3 Eggs

1 t Cinnamon

1 t Cumin

1 t Allspice

Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

In a food processor, pulse the pine nuts until you’ve got a coarse meal–don’t make them too fine, though, because you want a nice textural diversity in the finished product.  Do the same with the dates so that they are finely diced.

In a large bowl, combine the lamb, beef, onion, eggs, dates, pine nuts, and seasonings.  Press into a large, well greased loaf pan.  (You can also form into a loaf in a large baking dish or pan).

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, 15 minutes or until cooked through.
