Preheat your oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.

Mix your mince, breadcrumbs, mustard powder, 1/2 your parsley, egg and season generously with salt and pepper. Shape your meat mixture into a loaf.

Drizzle oil into a roasting dish and place your loaf in the centre. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes.

Glug of oil into a pan on medium-high heat. Add your chillies (whole) and your bacon sliced into lardons. Colour everything and decant it onto a plate, leaving the oils in the pan.

Finely chop your onion, carrot and garlic. Using the same pan, turn down the heat and add the veggies to the pan to soften for 6-8 minutes. Pour in your passata and return the bacon and chillies. Allow to warm up for 2-3 minutes and then stir through your remaining parsley.

Pour your tomato sauce over the meatloaf, sprinkle with cheddar cheese and return to the oven for a final 10 minutes.
