Mock Armadillo (Danish meatloaf)

It's actually called "forloren hare", which means mock hare, but the bacon makes it more of an armadillo
  • 500 grams ground pork
  • 1.5 tsp salt, but use less if using "rullepølse" stock
  • 0.5 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 2 dl.* pork stock
  • 1 dl.* flour
  • enough bacon strips to cover the loaf
  1. Stir the meat, salt, pepper, and marjoram until it looks like it will hold together.
  2. Add the egg and the minced garlic and stir. Then add the liquid, a little at a time.
  3. Last, add the flour and stir. Add more liquid if the dough is too firm.
  4. Heat oven to 200 degrees C (392 F).
  5. Put the dough in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Put the dough in the middle of a roasting pan in the shape of a loaf.
  7. Cover loaf with strips of bacon.
  8. Put the loaf in the oven for 45 minutes. You can check with a skewer that the loaf is firm and the juices run clear. Or check that it's at 165 deg F (~75 C) with a meat thermometer.

* dl = decilitre (0.1 litre)

We like to cook potato wedges with the meatloaf.

Tax that is very definitely our kind off food, I don't know if my memory has been distorted by time but 50 yrs ago on boxing day we went to our danish neighbours and I fell in love with two things, the first was the Au Pair Brit, the second was a stew that was served with rice, the meat was pork and the sauce seemed to have cheese in it.
Any ideas?

That doesn't ring a bell. Danes cook with pork a lot.

Oh Boy. First that pork roast wrapped in woven bacon strips, and now your armadillo with bacon strips. How delicious that looks!

Down here in my neck of the woods, they have armadillo races at the Swamp Cabbage Festival in February. Super silly watching the little guys scuttle around, sometimes even heading for the finish line.

Uncle Bob - don't eat that stuff you find on the road!

I think I'd need a lot of horseradish!

We made the dish last night. It was very tasty but we managed to confine ourselves to eating only half the loaf and all of the tasty potatoes. Because the flavor was vaguely similar to bangers, I think we'll eat the balance tonight with mashed potatoes and onion gravy.
