About this Recipe



Home-made Croutons

  • 8 slices of bread
  • 2 tbsp of Olive oil
  • 1 tsp of course garlic Salt

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp of Franks Hot Sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 onion, roughly chopped
  • Approx 1 cup of carrot sticks
  • 3 whole cloves garlic
  • 6-7 Mini sweet peppers (Cut off stems and remove seeds)
  • 32 ounces ground chuck
  • 16 ounces of Sausage (I used Hot)
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg


Step 1

Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

Step 2

Make homemade croutons: Slice the bread into ¾ squares and place in a mixing bowl. Toss together with the Olive oil and Garlic salt until all bread is covered.  Bake on a foil lined cookie sheet for 6-7 minutes until crispy brown

Step 3

In a food processor bowl, combine homemade croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture. Place this mixture into a large mixing bowl. Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and peppers in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed. Combine the vegetable mixture, beef, and sausage with the bread crumb mixture. Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt. Add the egg and combine thoroughly (I use my kitchenaid mixer)

Step 4

Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a silicon-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Insert a temperature probe at a 90 degree angle into the side of the meatloaf. Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe. Set the probe for 155 degrees.

Step 5

Combine the ketchup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes.
