“I have tried and tried meatloaf recipes they all fall apart before you get them out of the pan. This meatloaf is very good and sticks together to be served. Leftover meatloaf makes wonderful sandwiches with mayonnaise.”

Original recipe yields 10 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine the bell pepper, onion and celery. Process until finely chopped, but not liquid. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the ground beef, ground pork, cracker crumbs, onion soup mix, salt, pepper, sage and milk. Mix well using your hands, or if you have a stand mixer, mix using the paddle attachment. Transfer to a 9x5 inch loaf pan and form into a loaf, mounding in the center. Cover with a generous layer of ketchup.
  3. Bake for 1 1/2 hours in the preheated oven. Serve hot. Refrigerate leftovers, slice and serve cold in sandwiches.

I tried this recipe and it has a very good flavor, DIDN'T fall apart and makes excellent sandwiches... This is the one that I've been looking for, for a long time.

I slightly modified this recipe, and created a 5 star winner! I sauteed the chopped veggies, then quickly pulsed them in the food processor before mixing with other ingredients. Also, cut the sausage to 1/2 lb, only added 1 cup of milk, 1 cup bread crumbs and ommited the catchup. I am not a big meat loaf fan, but this actually changed my mind. It stayed together, and was awesome!

Soooooo... I was looking for a meatloaf recipe that would be as "generic" as possible. My husband was craving it and I had never made it. I am Peruvian and my husband is Bahamian and in Peru we do not make meatloaf as part of our day to day menu. Anyway... I picked this recipe as the ingredients sounded like a generic meatloaf, but I made a few changes: I did not have the onion soup so did not put it in, I replaced it by 1/4 cup of men-si (tau-si) sauce (you can find it in Asian foodstores). I added 2 eggs and cut the milk in half. We do not have mild pork sausages here in Peru so I replaced it by Argentinian chorizos. I did not cover it with ketchup before baking it. I left the rest just as it said on the recipe and it turned out delicious. My husband said it was the best meatloaf he has ever tried!
