  1. Check 2slices white sandwich bread, torn into small pieces
  2. Check 1pound ground lamb
  3. Check 1 large egg
  4. Check 4cloves garlic, chopped
  5. Check 2tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 2tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  8. Check 2tablespoons olive oil
  9. Check 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  10. Check 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  11. Check 215.5-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed
  12. Check 1tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  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.
