In a bowl, mix the mince with all the other ingredients up to and including the pepper, knead well by hand until the ingredients have combined to form a compact mass, shape the mixture into a meatloaf approx. 15 cm long. Place the carrots and potatoes in the roasting tin. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Brown the meatloaf all over for approx. 5 mins., only turning when a crust has formed. Place the meatloaf in the roasting tin on top of the carrots and potatoes. Pour the water into the same frying pan, loosen any bits that have stuck to the pan, reduce a little. Add the gravy mix, bring the liquid to the boil, pour around the meatloaf, season.
To roast in the oven
Approx. 50 mins. in the lower half of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove the meatloaf, cut into slices, serve with the roast potatoes, carrots and gravy.
