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


  • 1-1/4 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 pound bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 1-1/2 cups herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 5 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce, divided
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 small green pepper, diced
  • 8 to 10 fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced fully cooked ham, optional
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese


  1. In a bowl, combine ground beef, sausage, stuffing, egg, 3 tablespoons ketchup and 2 tablespoons steak sauce. Mix well.
  2. Pat half of the meat mixture into a 9x5-in. loaf pan. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Layer with tomato, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, ham if desired and Swiss cheese. Cover with remaining meat mixture; press down firmly to seal. (Mixture may be higher than the top of the pan.)
  3. Combine remaining ketchup and steak sauce; drizzle over top of meat loaf. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°, draining off fat when necessary.
