|1 lb||Beef, ground or minced, 20% fat|
|1 lb||Chorizo, Spanish pork sausage with paprika|
|1 (ea. 1.76 oz)||Egg, large|
|2 cups||Pork Rinds, Scratchings, Greaves, Cracklings|
|¼ cup||Onions, red, raw, chopped|
|2 (ea. 0.11 oz)||Garlic, raw|
|1½ tsp||Garlic Powder|
|1½ tsp||Onion Powder|
|1½ tsp||Paprika, ground, mild (spice)|
|½ tsp||Salt, Kosher salt, table salt|
|¼ tsp||Pepper, black, ground|
|1½ cups||Cheddar, cheese, shredded|
- Serving size: one slice, about 1 in thick; sufficient for a main meal
- Temperature: 350 °F
- In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground chorizo, egg, crushed pork rinds, chopped onion and spices.
- Add half the meat mixture to a greased loaf pan. You can use a 9 in by 5 in loaf pan for 8 servings. We used a 26 cm by 8 cm pan.
- Form a slight well in the center, leaving about an inch on all sides.
- Add the cheddar, cut into chunks or shredded, to the well.
- Add the remaining meat mixture. Press it down and level it.
- Bake until the internal temperature reaches 165 F or 74 C, about 35 to 45 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Cut into slices and serve, for example with a side of salsa and green beans.
- You can store the dish in an airtight container for 5 days in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer. For best results, thaw overnight in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave or the oven.
- You will likely have excess fat in the pan. If you are tracking your food intake and are discarding the fat, subtract it. This will likely make a difference of about 10 g of fat per serving.
