Meatloaf. You either love it or hate it. Ever since I was a kid I hated it. I dreaded coming home from school and finding meatloaf on our table. They would tell me my tastes would mature with age and I would grow to like it. In a sense they were right, but I am still picky when it comes to meatloaf. This recipe I am sharing with you is my favorite. Even my children love to eat this with my homemade mashed potatoes, and it is so simple.
The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then take a half-pound of sausage and a pound of hamburger meat and smash them together. I like using a potato masher to get it good and mixed.
Next, add a cup of restaurant-style salsa and a half a cup of ketchup, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Crumble a sleeve of crackers into the mixture to help absorb the moisture when it cooks. Don’t worry, the meatloaf will still be juicy and delicious.
Press into a loaf pan and coat with ketchup.
Bake for an hour or until it temps out at 165 degrees.
Serve with homemade mashed potatoes. They go really good with my recipe for my Sinfully Scrumptious Mashed Potatoes.
