  • 2 slices fresh white bread, crusts removed
  • 500g pack minced pork
  • onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • big handful of parsley
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped oregano or 1 tsp dried
  • 4 tbsp freshly grated parmesan
  • egg, beaten
  • 8 slices prosciutto

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Put bread in processor and blitz to make crumbs, then tip into a bowl with the pork.
  2. Tip the onion, garlic and herbs into the food processor and process until finely chopped. Add to the bowl with the parmesan and egg. Finely chop 2 slices of the prosciutto and add to the mix with some salt and pepper. Mix well with a fork or your hands.
  3. Use the rest of the prosciutto to line a 1.5 litre loaf tin. Spoon in the meatloaf mix and press down well. Flip the overhanging prosciutto over the top, then put the loaf tin into a roasting tray. 
  4. Pour hot water from the kettle into the roasting tray to come halfway up the loaf tin and bake for 1 hr until loaf shrinks from the sides of tin.
  5. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then drain off any excess liquid and turn out onto a board. Cut into thick slices and serve warm or cold with salad.
