The herbs and spices in the Italian sausage are what makes this meatloaf recipe so tasty. This is a very moist meatloaf, and the leftovers make a great sandwich.

Makes 8 Portions of Super Sausage Meatloaf

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup finely diced onions
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 2/3 cup finely diced carrots
  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage, removed from casings
  • 1 1/4 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup finely crushed saltine crackers
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch of cayenne
  • For the meatloaf glaze:
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


In a large pan, sauté the onions, celery and carrots, in the butter, on medium heat for about 10 minutes, until the vegetable soften and sweeten. Let cool to room temp.

In a large mixing bowl, use your hands to mix the beef and sausage until combined. Add all the rest of the ingredients (except for the glaze), and mix until combined. Lightly grease the bottom of a roasting pan with a few drops of vegetable oil. Wet your hands with cold water, and form the meatloaf mixture into a loaf shape, about 6 inches wide, by about 3 to 4 inches high in the pan.

Mix the glaze ingredients together and spread evenly over the top of the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf at 325 degrees F., for 1 hour and 30 minutes, OR until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let meatloaf rest for 15 minutes before serving.
