Recipe Month

When my daughter was twelve, she decided she wanted to be vegetarian. My sister and family are, and were visiting that summer. I agreed that if she still wanted to after their visit, that would be fine...for the next four years she was. This recipe was what I cooked for her the first Christmas, while we had our turkey. We still have it as part of our Christmas meal.

Lentil Loaf

1 oz. butter
12 ozs. lentils, cooked
8 ozs. cheddar cheese, grated
2 medium onions, chopped finely
2 ozs. mushrooms, sliced
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tab. fresh parsley, chopped
3 ozs. dry brown breadcrumbs
1 egg beaten
3 tabs. double cream (I use regular cream)

Combine lentils, cheese, onions and mushrooms, mixing until well blended. Stir in salt, pepper, cloves and parsley. Add breadcrumbs, egg and cream, beat until well blended. Pour mixture into a greased, 1 pound loaf tin. Cut remaining butter over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for fifty minutes

My brother-in-law made it his first visit here, it was Christmas. It has remained a favorite. Hope you like it:))

This looks lovely. I'm definitely going to give it a try. One question, do you use any particular type of lentils or doesn't it matter?

I use yellow lentils but I don't think it would matter which ones you use. Hope you enjoy it:))
