Preheat oven to 350 F
1 lb ground sausage
1/2 to 1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup breadcrumbs or oatmeal
1 small onion, finely chopped or grated about 1/2 cup
1 garlic clove minced (1 teaspoon)
1/2 small green bell pepper (finely chopped)
3 tbsp ketchup
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. (Do not over mix) make sure mixture incorporates all ingredients. Form meat mixture into a loaf shape in either a 9X5X3 inch loaf pan, or smaller loafs on a cookie sheet about the size of your palm in a loaf shape. Bake the meatloaf in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. The drippings can be used for gravy if wanted. While the meatloaf is baking, mix the glaze in a small bowl.
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tsp dry mustard
Mix until all incorporated. Spread on top of the meatloaf after the first 40 minutes, bake an additional 15-20 minutes more. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with leftover glaze for added flavor.
I am not one for gravy with my meatloaf. I prefer to eat just the glaze with my meatloaf. But I know others like gravy. So with the drippings from the glaze. Add to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Mix in a separate bowl - 3 tbsp flour and 1/2 cup cold water. Once the sauce pan is boiling, pour in the flour mixture and continue to stir until thickened. Keep at a rolling boil for 2 minutes, to cook the flour flavor out. You can add additional salt and pepper, or worchestershire sauce for added flavor.
I hope you enjoy this. I'm gonna get making mine for tonights dinner. I'll add pictures soon. :)
