This is a twist on the traditional meatloaf! A lamb loaf is made with a generous amount of parsley and onion, and seasoned elegantly with lemon zest and allspice. Serve with pita bread or rice.

This recipe was easy to prepare and tasted fine. However, my loaf was swimming in fat when done. It was way too greasy, so I will DEFINITELY leave out the butter if I make this recipe again!

Recipe was good. I did leave out the butter, tomato and lemon zest. I also used ground beef instead of lamb. The best way to prepare this is on the grill. Shape the meat into sausages and grill. MMMMM! We serve with a garlic sauce, hummus and pita.

I added paprika and LOVED it! Also loved the lemon zest - I made this on a cookie sheet rolled into meatballs and flattened. I agree with other posters, lots of excess fat in the runoff (also why I liked the cookie sheet - drained the excess liquid) so I'll leave out the butter next time, but will definitely make again.
