Stuffed Meat Loaf Recipe

My husband's job takes him away from home a good deal. When he returns, his first request is always for this stuffed meat loaf!—Lisa Williams, Steamboat Springs, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 pound Johnsonville® Hot Ground Sausage
  • 1-1/2 cups herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 5 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce, divided

  • 1/2 small green pepper, diced
  • 8 to 10 fresh mushrooms, sliced

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine ground beef, sausage, stuffing, egg, 3 tablespoons ketchup and 2 tablespoons steak sauce. Mix well.
