  2. Line the base and two sides of a lightly greased loaf tin with baking paper. Line the paper with the prosciutto slices making sure the prosciutto overlaps to cover the top of the meatloaf.
  3. Push the mince mixture into the loaf tin well, cover with the prosciutto slices. Bake for 60 minutes or until meatloaf shrinks slightly and is firm in the centre and no longer pink inside. Stand for 5 minutes before turning out of pan. Serve with mashed potato and vegetables.
