Sausage, Pepper and Onion Meatloaf

I have been on a major sausage, pepper and onion kick the last few weeks.  It started with my Sausage, Pepper and Onion Pasta and now it's morphed into this meatloaf.  We ate this for dinner with mashed potatoes and broccoli and then the next day in spectacular meatloaf sandwiches that tasted like a sausage and pepper sandwich.  I am glad I get to finally use up my poultry seasoning (that I only use around Thanksgiving time) and fennel seeds. My version of "sausage" is really a combination of lean chicken and pork. It's tastes like the hot Italian sausage I used to buy in links, but with no grease.  I am really enjoying getting the flavor of hot Italian sausage, but custom made for my taste and lean so I can feel less guilty eating a nice thick slice.

2 onions sliced
2-3 bell peppers or sweet peppers sliced
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and black pepper

Meatloaf ingredients:
1lb ground chicken
1lb ground pork
1Tbs grated garlic
2 tsp fennel seed
2 tsp seasoning salt (or to taste)
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp poultry seasoning
2 tsp paprika                                                                                                 Sauce:
2eggs                                                                                                  2-3 Tbs Ketchup
red chili flakes to taste                                                                          1 Tbs sriracha
black pepper to taste
4-5 slices of bread mixed with 1/4 of milk and crumbled

Mix all meatloaf ingredients and form a loaf on a baking sheet.
Tip: line baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.

Bake in a 375 oven for 20 minutes then apply sauce over the top of meatloaf and bake for another 20-25 minutes until loaf is cooked through.

In a pan saute the onions, peppers, salt, pepper, dried basil and oregano.

Serve meatloaf with peppers and onions.  You can accompany it with mash potatoes or any of your favorite meatloaf sides.  You can also make it into meatloaf sandwiches.  Enjoy.

  1. That is one awesome meatloaf! great combo with the sausage, pepper and onions!

  2. Oh my gosh, Ramona! What a GREAT Saturday supper this would make. I must meatloaves don't always come out so very moist! But this looks fabulous! I especially love the peppers and onions! And to me...the whole purpose for making meatloaf is to have leftovers for those great sandwiches! This looks delicious! I hope you have a great weekend and the most wonderful Mother's Day! : )

  3. Is it bad that I'm sitting here with a cup of coffee in my hand and I still want this? I think it would make an awesome breakfast...just slice me a piece, lay on some peppers, I'll put a sunny-side up egg over them and be good to go!

  4. My son would absolutely love this recipe! I hope you have an amazing Mother's Day! You deserve it!

  5. This meatloaf sounds completely delicious =)

  10. I've been looking for a good meatloaf recipe and this one sounds just right. Onions, lots of peppers and sausages - YUM!

  11. I love the sauteed onions and peppers on the side of this one! This sounds great first time around, but I would kill for the left overs for a sandwhich!!! :)

  12. This is one fantastic meatloaf!!! I love the vibrant colors and my husband would do the happy dance if I made this. Have you ever thought of auditioning for the next Food Network Star? Seriously girl you have what it takes.

  13. Can I make this marvel without the breadcrumbs? (Paleo/GF/DF)?...Could I possibly sub something (almond meal/quinoa flakes/oats)without destroying your creation?..Thank you for sharing...this looks phenomenal!

    1. You can definitely try any of the them. Just make sure they are moist so it keeps the meatloaf moist and it should work well. :) Hope you enjoy. :)
