This yields enough for two of these recipes (or you can double it to make all four): Glazed Meatloaf, Skewered Greek Meatballs, Moroccan Hand Pies, and Vietnamese Kebabs. This versatile mixture can also be frozen on its own, so you can complete the recipes another time.

Instructions Checklist
  • Working in batches, pulse bread in a food processor until medium-coarse crumbs form (you should have 3 cups breadcrumbs). Transfer to a bowl. Stir in milk; let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, puree garlic and onion until smooth. Pulse in egg, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper to combine.

  • Mix garlic mixture into breadcrumb mixture. Add beef and pork, and mix until just barely combined; do not overmix. Divide mixture into 2 portions, and continue with variations.

Cook's Notes

Good and easy recipe. I do have an issue with this being used for the Moroccan meat pie recipe, since pork is most definitely not used in most Moroccan cuisine due to religious restrictions. Even though I love pork and eat it often, for a more authentic (and delicious) Moroccan recipe, I will substitute ground lamb next time. Beside, ground lamb and beef in this recipe would be a good base for an Armenian Lula kebab recipe :)

Not print friendly, and no way to save to my collections. All the good web-sites are really better.
