4.2 from 5 reviews

Your basic juicy meatloaf, with a spicy tomato sauce


  • 1 pound of lean ground beef
  • 24 ounces pork sausage
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup oatmeal, bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, cornflakes, sand (Just kidding about that last option)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup minced parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Optional additional vegetables: 1/2 cup grated carrot, squash, spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 12 tablespoons minced jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon wine or cider vinegar


  1. For the meatloaf, preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Combine meat, egg, oatmeal, seasoning, onion, parsley, and garlic and any additional vegetables you like. Mix it up well with your hands. Put it into a loaf pan, or shape it into a loaf and put it on a baking sheet. Bake one hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 160-165 F.
  3. Make the sauce: Saute the onion, garlic, and jalapeno in the oil for about 5 minutes or until it’s softened. Add the broth, tomato, honey, and vinegar. Simmer 30 minutes.
  4. Allow meatloaf to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving with the tomato gravy.
