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.”

Ingredients
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound hot or mild sausage
2 eggs
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Worcestershire sauce, to taste
2 sleeves saltines
ketchup
Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Using your hands, mix beef, sausage, eggs, onions, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Add saltines until stiff enough to form a loaf and place in a loaf pan.

Bake for 60 to 90 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the loaf reads at least 160°F. Spread ketchup on top of loaf during last 15 minutes of baking time.
