What comes to mind when you hear Jamaican meat pie? Those who are familiar with Jamaica and our cuisine will probably think of the flavourful Jamaican patties.
Which, is kind of a meat pie, but today I am going to introduce to you another Jamaican favourite. Even though here on the island, we do not call it a meat pie here on the island, it can definitely be considered one.

Have you ever had a Jamaican meatloaf? No? Well, today you will learn all about it. If you have ever had a Jamaican beef patty, you probably have heard that it pairs quite well with our Jamaican coco bread, some like to call it folding bread as well (because it folds in half).
Well instead of having a beef patty and coco bread, the Jamaican meatloaf combines the two into one great meat pie.
And if you were wondering, no, the Jamaican meatloaf is nothing like the American version.
This Jamaican meatloaf is a complete dish all on its own, you do not need any side dishes or accompaniments, and I dare say you might not even be able to finish it in one sitting.
Similar to Jamaican patties, meat loaves are not typically made at home but are mostly bought from popular patty companies such as Tastee and Juici Patties (Juici Beef).
While it is one of my favourites, it is significantly less popular than beef patties.

Now it is time to combine to assemble and bake your meatloaves.
I always say that most Jamaican dishes are very customisable and this Jamaican meat pie/ meatloaf is one of them. While ground beef is the most popular way to do this, you can also try making this with vegetables.
The most common vegetable to make this with is callaloo. I do imagine, while I have not seen it done, you can also try this with other popular Jamaican patty fillings such as curry and jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish, beef with cheese, shrimp or lobster.
Whatever you do and however you choose to create or reimagine this Jamaican favourite, remember practice makes perfect and experimenting in the kitchen is always fun.
