  1. In a large mixing bowl add all your seasoning, your minced beef and onion. Mix it well and combine it with your hands. Turn it out onto a clean worktop and pat it down so that it looks like pastry that has been rolled out.
  2. Chop up some cheese and layer it down the middle section of your meatloaf, then wrap it up like it is a sausage roll.
  3. Place it in the slow cooker on low on top of a tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Mix your red wine and homemade tomato sauce together and pour it around the meatloaf but not actually on it.
  5. Place the bacon over the top of the meatloaf so that you can’t see the top of your meatloaf.
  6. Cook for 4 hours on low, or until it is cooked in the centre.
  7. Serve with roast potatoes and vegetables.
Recipe Notes
We are not big eaters thanks to being hypnotised with a hypnotic gastric band a few years ago, so for many you would probably be more suited to doubling the size of your mince portion. If you are increasing the size then double up all the seasonings too.

You can also make this more frugal by swapping the minced beef for minced pork.
