    Hi, I’m not sure – are you supposed to squeeze the bread after it’s been in the water?
    And are you supposed to baste the meatloaf regularly while it’s cooking, or tip out the accumulated oils underneath at any point – or just leave it alone?
    Lastly I wonder will this recipe work using pork or veal mince – turkey is rare where I live (or a similar easy recipe), thanks!

    Hi Marie,
    You don’t need to squeeze the bread after it’s been in the water – the extra water will make the meatloaf more juicy. You don’t need to baste the meatloaf or mess with it in any way once it’s in the oven – just leave it alone :) This meatloaf will work with any kind of meat, including ground pork and veal.
