The best meatloaf recipes have a taste of nostalgia as you gather around the dinner table with your family. This meatloaf uses a mixture of sausage and ground beef for a delicious meal that everyone is sure to enjoy! We love preparing the meatloaf ahead of time and popping it in the oven when our families start to get hungry in the evening.

From the recipe’s author: “This is how my dad used to make it. Everyone who has eaten it just loves it. I love it because it reminds me of him.”
