Recipe for Veal Loaf:

Veal loaf is a delicious and versatile dish that has been enjoyed for many years. It is a comforting and hearty meal that is perfect for any occasion. The history of veal loaf can be traced back to European cuisine, particularly in countries like Hungary, where it is often prepared in a traditional Hungarian style. This recipe takes inspiration from Hungarian veal shoulder or neck dishes.

Fun fact: Veal loaf is often considered a budget-friendly alternative to traditional meatloaf, as it uses veal, which is typically more affordable compared to ground beef or pork.

- 2 pounds of chopped veal
- 4 tablespoons of bread crumbs
- 2 beaten eggs
- Salt, pepper, ginger, and nutmeg (to taste)
- A little water
- 1 tablespoon of chicken fat
- Chicken fat for greasing the pan

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. In a large bowl, combine the chopped veal, bread crumbs, beaten eggs, salt, pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and a little water. Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined.
3. Grease an oblong tin with chicken fat to prevent the veal loaf from sticking.
4. Transfer the veal mixture into the greased tin and shape it into a loaf.
5. Place a piece of chicken fat on top of the veal loaf.
6. Bake the veal loaf in the preheated oven, basting frequently, until it is fully cooked and golden brown. This usually takes about 1 hour, but cooking time may vary depending on your oven and the thickness of the loaf.
7. Once cooked, remove the veal loaf from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Serve the veal loaf warm, and enjoy it as a main dish with your favorite sides. It pairs well with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad.
