Ingredients

2 lb (900 g) ground chicken
1 lb (450 g) lean ground veal
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup (250 mL) Italian-style bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) apples, peeled and diced
6 oz (180 g) Canadian Brick cheese, diced
A few pinches of salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup (125 mL) unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (125 mL) ketchup or 
barbecue sauce
1/2 onion, finely sliced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).

In a large bowl, mix chicken with veal, garlic, bread crumbs, apples and Brick cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Press into a 9 x 5-inch (23 cm x 13 cm) loaf pan and cook in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix applesauce with ketchup or barbecue sauce and onion. Brush top of meat loaf with applesauce mixture and bake 20 minutes more.*

Tips

*Before serving, use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature has reached a minimum of 165 °F (75 °C).

Some of the best apple varieties to cook with are Gala and Cortland because of their good sweet-tart balance and ability to hold their shape as they cook.

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Swiss cheese, Cheddar, Havarti, Mozzarella.
