Savory Meat Loaf Sandwiches Recipe

My philosophy is that life's too short to eat bland, boring foods, so I created this recipe. With salsa and cayenne pepper, these sandwiches pack a little punch.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours + cooling YIELD:14-16 servings

  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickle

  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 pounds Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 14 to 16 hard rolls, split
  • Dijon mustard

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add the next eight ingredients; mix well. Add the sausage; mix well. Press into an ungreased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
