Ingredients

  1. Check 2 slices white sandwich bread, torn into small pieces
  2. Check 1 pound ground lamb
  3. Check 1 large egg
  4. Check 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  5. Check 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  8. Check 2 tablespoons olive oil
  9. Check 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  10. Check 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  11. Check 2 15.5-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed
  12. Check 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a large bowl, combine the bread and 3 tablespoons water. Add the lamb, egg, half the garlic, half the thyme, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Place the mixture on a foil-lined baking sheet and shape into a 6-inch loaf (about 3 inches thick). Bake, brushing with the balsamic vinegar several times during cooking, until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 150° F, 30 to 35 minutes. Let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bell pepper, onion, and the remaining garlic and thyme and cook, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the beans, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes; stir in the lemon juice. Serve with the meat loaf.
