My own meatloaf recipe is descended from my mom's, but I've innovated considerably from her version of it.
2 lbs Ground Beef, preferably lean
1 16oz package Owens Hot Sausage
1 medium White Onion, diced
1 Green Bell Pepper, diced
2 tablespoons Minced Garlic
2 tablespoons beef broth powder (Knorrs)
1 tsp black pepper
1 12oz can Tomato Paste
¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
1½ tsp Ground Celery Seed
1 tsp Yellow Mustard Powder
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
Heinz 57 Steak Sauce
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients, mixing with your hands (yes, it's kind of distasteful, but hands wash). Divide up into eight mini-loaves, each about softball size, oval-shaped, and place on an oven broiler pan (the underpan will catch the grease). Top each mini-loaf with a mixture of ketchup and Heinz 57 Steak Sauce. Heat the oven to 400°, and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. The sauce on the tops should be slightly blackened.
Serve with your best mashed potatoes, and green beans cooked with bacon (I like Italian cut).
The measurements here are approximate; I've been making this recipe for years, and it's always been something I just throw together. So it was a little difficult to quantify exactly what I put into it by exact measurements. But this ought to be pretty close.
