Church Lady Meatloaf!

I call this "Church Lady Meatloaf" because the recipe was from a sweet 'church lady' that played the organ in the church we went to when I was growing up.   She was a wonderful a cook and had some great recipes. 

 This is a very different meatloaf from the one I have posted before that is my sister in law's recipe, but it might be one that some of you who thought that one was a bit sweet or whatever, might enjoy better.  This does make a big meatloaf so it's good for company or a potluck or church supper!  This one is also great for leftover meatloaf sandwiches.   I enjoy the sandwich the next day sometimes even better.  Here is what you will need for this meatloaf:

1 lb. ground chuck
1 lb. ground sausage (like breakfast type sausage)
1 medium sweet onion, diced fine
1 small jar pimento, drained and diced fine
1/2 green bell pepper, diced fine
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1 cup fine bread crumbs (could use Italian bread crumbs or oats)
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 cup tomato ketchup
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the meatloaf ingredients until well blended.  Shape into a large loaf and place in a baking dish.  Mix the topping ingredients and spread over the top of the loaf.  Place in a 350 degree oven and bake uncovered for 1 hour.   Transfer to serving platter, slice and serve.

The other meatloaf recipe I mentioned that is on the site is here, in case you have not seen it before:  The Perfect Meatloaf


  1. It looks beautiful and would be sooooooo tasty with some mashed potatoes and Texas Toast!

  2. Looks good, but my family wouldn't go for it. They like a meatloaf with only ground beef. I tried once to make one with beef and sausage and ended up throwing part of it out. So, I only make mine the way I always have and usually only have enough left over for a couple of sandwiches the next day.

  3. My family LOVES this recipe! But I couldn't find my copy and couldn't remember where I had gotten it from. Hallelujah! I found it again!
