  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a large 900g loaf tin.
  2. In a saucepan over a medium heat, combine the brown sugar, marmalade, ketchup and mustard and stir until well mixed together. Remove from the heat.

If you can't get hold of rabbit then chicken will do. I like this sliced thick with thick wedges of Cheddar cheese, pickled onions, pickled beetroot and farmhouse chutney.

What Is Cumberland Pie?

When is a pie not a pie? Seems that the British do not restrict the term pie to only pastry goods. Cooked meats covered with a thick topping of creamy mashed potatoes is also a pie if you are from the UK and Ireland. One such 'pie' is a Cumberland Pie, but just why is a Cumberland Pie any different, you may ask, given it looks almost the same as a Cottage Pie or Shepherd's Pie. All three are much the same thing but in the first two, the meats vary in a shepherd's pie, the meat is lamb (there is a clue in the name) yet in a cottage pie it is beef. A Cumberland pie can be either meat.

  • 10 slices streaky bacon, rindless (see tip)
  • 85 g sliced white bread, torn in pieces
  • 10 g fresh sage leaves
  • 5 g fresh parsley leaves
  • 35 g celery, cut in pieces (3 cm)
  • 100 g onions, quartered
  • 10 g olive oil
  • 1 Bramley cooking apple, peeled, cored, cut in eighths (approx. 130 g)
  • 800 g sausages, Cumberland, skins removed, broken in pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 8 oz canned without juice diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup ketchup

  • 3/4 Cups panko bread crumbs
  • 3/4 Cups ketchup, divided
  • 1/2 Cup minced onion

  • 1 Teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 Teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

Cumberland roast chicken

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Scrub the potatoes and finely slice, then wash, trim and finely slice the parsnips and leeks. Place it all in a 30cm x 40cm roasting tray, and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and the sage leaves (reserving the stalks and a few leaves for later). Squeeze the sausagemeat out of the skins and scrunch together. Pull up the chicken skin at the tip of the breasts and use a spatula to gently separate the skin down the breast meat, then poke half the sausagemeat into each side, smoothing it out as you go. Secure the skin with a cocktail stick. Rub the chicken all over with a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon of oil. Stuff the sage stalks into the chicken cavity. Place the chicken directly on the bars of the oven with the tray of veg underneath, and roast for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until everything is golden and cooked through.

With 10 minutes to go, sprinkle the reserved sage leaves over the tray of veg, so they crisp up nicely. Very finely slice or coarsely grate the pear, and toss with the watercress. Sit the chicken on the veg and serve everything together at the table.

How to Cook Meatloaf in an Oven

Making meatloaf in the oven is another option. The biggest challenge here will be keeping the meat moist. However, the addition of vegetables, cheese and breadcrumbs will work to lock moisture in.

The right fat content will also help keep the meat moist. An 80/20 lean to fat ratio is recommended.

To cook meatloaf in an oven, start by mixing your ingredients together and place them in a 4x4x8” pan. As far as cook time and temperature, slow and low is the way to go. It is ideal to bake the meatloaf for 60 to 90 minutes at a temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Before pulling the meat from the oven, make sure it has reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Then let it rest for about 10 minutes. This will ensure that the juices are distributed evenly throughout the loaf.

Once the process is done, you are ready to serve it to your family.

Fun Facts about Cracker Barrel

The first Cracker Barrel was opened off Interstate 40 in Lebanon, Tennessee in 1969 by Dan Evins.

Since then, they&rsquove become an interstate institution. Famous for their checker boards, all-you-can-eat biscuits, tabletop peg games, and old-fashioned country store with vintage candy, games, and even rocking chairs.

Plus, all of those antique items you see hanging on the walls in the dining room are all vintage items inspired by local history. No reproductions allowed.

In fact, Cracker Barrel now owns quite the antique collection, with over 100,000 items.

Growing up, my family went to Cracker Barrel nearly every weekend. It felt like a second home. So it was only natural that it became my first job as a hostess when I was in high school.

But it&rsquos been years since I stepped inside a Cracker Barrel. Although just writing this article makes me crave those homemade biscuits and fried apples.
