Southwestern Meatloaf

Anna requested this recipe. So here it is.

  • 1 pound ground beef, lean
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
  • 2/3 cup Southwestern Egg Beaters
  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped jalapenos
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste


Combine all ingredients and mix until well blended. Line the bottom of the pan with two slices of stale bread* to absorb the fat. Pack into a loaf pan and bake at 350° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove from pan, peel bread from bottom **and serve.
Serves 8.

Makes great sandwiches to take to work for lunch. Since I am only one, when I make it I freeze half of it for another week.

* If you don't have any stale bread, fresh will do.
** If you live in a cold climate and have an outside dog, in the winter you can feed the bread to the dog to help with her keeping warm. If, like me, you don't have a dog, ravens*** love it.
*** When the bears are hibernating, I can just throw it out on my roof, but since I don't want to attract them the rest of the year, I save it in a baggy and then feed the ravens downtown.

It makes wonderful meatloaf sandwiches. I make them with multigrain bread, mustard, lettuce, and the meatloaf. My idea of good. Add some tomatoes Khandahar, a piece of fruit, and something cold to drink and I am one happy woman.
