Lamb & Bulgur Loaf


From EatingWell:  January/February 1998

Bulgur and lamb are flavored with mint and cumin in a Middle Eastern twist on meatloaf.

6 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil an 8-inch-square baking pan or coat it with nonstick spray.
  2. Place bulgur in a large bowl and cover with warm water. Let soak for 30 minutes. Drain and return to bowl. Add lamb, onion, egg, garlic, mint, salt, cumin and pepper; mix well.
  3. Transfer mixture to prepared pan. With dampened hands, form into a 7-by-4-inch loaf. Spread with 2 tablespoons Tart Tomato Sauce.
  4. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of loaf registers 160°F, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Serve with remaining sauce.
