We love Grandma's version of meat loaf so much that we have it at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter—the holidays wouldn't be the same without it! It's just as good the next day, as a cold sandwich.—Joan Frey, Spencer, Ohio


  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 3 bacon strips, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 ounces cubed cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage


  1. In a large bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, bacon, onion, cheese, seasoned salt and pepper. Add beef and sausage; mix well. In a shallow baking pan, shape mixture into an 8x4-in. oval.
  2. Bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°; drain.
