This time I have used Chayote fruits for savory dish: a meat loaf.
Since Chayote can be used as all squashes, I decided to replace chopped zucchinis with Chayote and added it into a meat loaf to discover the taste. Also, it was a perfect timing to taste new “batch” of Mirepoix Seasoning Grandmother’s Way .
While the loaf was baking, I have used one flat baking dish, lightly buttered to bake pumpkin, potatoes, celeriac, carrots and leek slices to have it as a side dish also baked in the oven. Altogether, it is an excellent suggestion for a lunch or a supper.

- 1 cup minced meat, pork and beef mixture
- 1 Tbsp Mirepoix Seasoning

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together and let them rest for a while.

Put the meat into a dish and bake for 50 minutes to become crusty on the top.
