Miranda's Meatloaf Recipe
2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb. ground breakfast sausage (mild or regular)
1/2 sleeve of finely crushed saltines or Ritz crackers
1 dash of Worcestershire
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. ketchup
1/2 c. finely chopped bell pepper
1/2 finely chopped onion
Mix all the above ingredients together (best option: dig in with both hands!). Put into a baking dish (casserole or loaf style).
Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Prepare topping while baking.
Blend together 1 c. ketchup and 1/4 c. brown sugar.
After baking, pour grease off of loaf. Spread topping over meat generously. (If using a large pan you may need extra; use ratio above.) Place pan back in the oven for 15 minutes to bake. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
