Recently on our Facebook page one of our amazing Fire Cider fans told us she’s been making Fire Cider infused meatballs.  Yum!  I decided to give the idea a try.  We were having friends over for dinner so I made a meatloaf version using Mark Bittman’s basic meatloaf recipe as a guide.  I’m sure most of you have a recipe you always use but just in case, here’s what I did, the recipe will serve 6-8 people.  And if you have time, this recipe is great for meatballs too!

Ingredients:

2 pounds ground beef

1 pound ground lamb (or pork)

1/2 pound bacon, half of it minced and half reserved in strips.

1/2 cup cream or milk

3 Tablespoons ground flax

1 extra-large farm egg

2 Tablespoons Fire Cider

1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

1/2 small white onion, minced

1 tsp salt

1 tsp chili powder or hot pepper flakes

Ready to bake!

Method:

Pre heat oven to 350

Beat the egg into the milk and flax, add all of the other ingredients and mix well in a large bowl.

Shape into a loaf in a glass baking dish, make sure there is some room on all four sides.

Lay the remaining strips of bacon on top.

Bake at 350 for about 1 hour to 1.5 hours, until it’s firm and reads 160 degrees in the center!

Take it out, let it rest for about 15 minutes, transfer to a plate and serve.
