Vietnamese egg meatloaf is a very traditional dish that is simple and cheap to make. This meatloaf is usually eaten with white rice, including Vietnamese special broken rice (com tam) where it can be used as the egg component. It’s also seriously good chilled. Cut any leftovers into wedges and store in the fridge, and you’ll have a great snack to grab whenever you’re feeling peckish.
If you are wondering if this dish tastes like a Western-style meat loaf then no. It tastes totally different but is a similar concept – mince, mixed with vegetables and seasoning, then baked. Instead of a sticky tomato sauce glaze, it is topped with a bright egg yolks to give its iconic yellow finish
