Meatloaf Embotido

I make it a point to serve rice for breakfast. Having a full breakfast meal makes us more energetic and alert in the morning.

I should prepare viands for breakfast different from our lunch and dinner food. I also consider the preparation time when I’m cooking our early morning food. I don’t want to feed my family processed and canned foods always because these are not good for our health.

Ground meat is the main ingredient in many traditional dishes from almost every culture. I always choose lean ground meat for cooking. I know that there are recipes which benefited from slightly higher fat contents, but still I want lean mince.

We can cook embotido, meat loaf, relleno, galantina, longganiza, and others from mince. I have many embotido and meat loaf recipes but I didn’t have the complete ingredients for embotido and also for the meat loaf when I cooked this food so I just combined what was available in my fridge and pantry to come out with this dish. I called this dish meatloaf embotido (lol) which tastes like longganiza (according to my son).

Ingredients:

½ kilo ground lean pork

1 bulb garlic, crushed

1 large egg

100 gm grated cheese

½ tbsp. sweet pickle relish

¼ cup bread crumbs

salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:

Combine all ingredients. Grease 1 standard-sided loaf pan. Bake at 220°C for 50 minutes. Serve with catsup or gravy.

Hi Lani!

You are so right! breakfast is an important meal which unfortunately, we never take. I've adapted my husband's no breakfast-light-lunch-and-heavy dinner practise...soooo bad!

yummy embutido, meron pa ba? ;-)

Halloooooh!

Holy tokwa, embutido! Biglang nami-miss ko Lolo ko; mom's Papa made this super-sarap na embutido with bacon for a not-so-secret ingredient. Lolo would wrap the embutido logs in raw bacon strips so that all that fatty goodness would seep in during baking.

Trying out your recipe this weekend; request kasi ni kapatid kong pari na sa wakas!
