For the meatloaf

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp chives, finely chopped

750g/1lb 19oz minced chicken

50g/1¾oz bacon, finely chopped

1 tsp ground oregano

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

50ml/2fl oz lactose free double cream

100g/3½oz gluten free breadcrumbs

2 free-range egg whites

100g/3½oz gruyère, grated

5 slices of rindless streaky bacon

For the glaze

100ml/3½fl oz ketchup

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the chicken in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Add the chopped bacon, chives, oregano, zest, mustard, lactose free cream and gluten free breadcrumbs. Add the egg and stir everything together thoroughly.

Take a small piece of the mixture and fry it. Taste and adjust the seasoning and any other flavours accordingly.

For the glaze, put all the ingredients into a saucepan and season with salt and pepper. Heat through gently and set aside.

Take half the chicken mixture, and mould it onto a baking tray, using the size of a loaf pan for guidance and making it as even as you can.

Put the cheese down the centre, making sure you leave a border all the way round, then top with the remaining chicken mixture, building up round the sides and making sure it is well sealed as you don’t want the cheese leaking out.

You should end up with a slightly domed loaf. Brush on some of the glaze.

Cut the bacon slices in half and stretch with the back of a knife.

Each slice should reach from the base of one side, over the top and to the bottom of the other side. Brush with a little more of the glaze.

Bake for 30 minutes, then remove and brush with the remaining glaze.

Bake for a further 30 minutes, by which time the meatloaf should be cooked through with nicely crisp bacon. Serve in thick slices.
