Seasoned Meatloaf

Prep Time: 2 Hours
Yields: 6 Servings

While this meatloaf is superb fresh out of the oven, it also makes for great leftovers. Slice a piece of the meatloaf and make a cold sandwich with it for lunch the next day.


  • 2 pounds ground chuck
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions
  • ¼ cup diced red bell peppers
  • ¼ cup diced garlic
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup chopped basil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • Louisiana hot sauce to taste
  • ½ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 cups favorite tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chuck, pork, onions, celery, green onions, bell peppers, garlic, parsley and basil. Using your hands, mix ingredients until all seasonings are well blended. Add eggs, whipping cream, salt, pepper, hot sauce and bread crumbs. Mix well and mold into a loaf. Place loaf in a casserole dish with sides high enough to hold juices. NOTE: Meatloaf should not touch sides of dish. Top with sauce and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake uncovered 1–1½ hours or until internal temperature reaches 160°F.
