Chris says: This recipe is a summertime favourite with our family. It takes a little while to prepare but the result is absolutely delicious!

However, you can serve it hot in winter and it tastes every bit as good then too.

If you serve this dish hot, then seasonal vegetables are good accompaniments. If served cold, this meatloaf goes really well with a fresh garden salad and a side of crusty fresh bread.
