1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Salt and black pepper to taste
4 large potatoes, frozen and finely chopped
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Heat and prepare: Bake at 190°C and Grease a 9×13 baking dish with about an inch of oil.

Mix meat: In a large bowl, combine ground meat, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.


Shaping and Preparation: Put the mixture in a baking dish and make a loaf in the middle. Arrange the baked potatoes around the lightly stuffed bread. Add plenty of salt.

Add cheese: Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the meat and potatoes. Bake, uncovered, for another 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the meat is nicely browned.
