Bev's Famous Meatloaf

Found this in People magazine.  It said it's one of Miranda Lambert's mom's fave recipes.  

The first time I tried it I only used one pound ground beef to make sure we liked it.  It was a hit with my husband and me!  We're already making it a second week in a row.  This time I'm using a pound of ground beef and a pound of ground pork.

Give it a try!


2 lbs lean ground beef
1 lb ground pork sausage
18 saltine crackers, crushed
1/2 green bell pepper, diced (I used a mixture of red, orange and yellow from my freezer)
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tb Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp yellow mustard
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup ketchup


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine first 8 ingredients and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a medium bowl just until blended.  Place mixture in a lightly greased 11x7 inch baking dish, and shape into a 10x5 inch loaf.

2.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Remove from oven and drain.  Stir together ketchup and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar; pour over meat loaf.  Bake 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160 degrees.  Remove from oven; let stand 20 minutes.  Remove from baking dish before slicing.

Makes: 10 servings
