Meatloaf Surprise

Laura Drob


This recipe came about one night when I didn't have quite enough ground beef for a meatloaf so I decided that maybe if I used the left over sausage from breakfast it should make enough meatloaf for dinner. And voila' I had meatloaf surprise, I was surprised it came out delicious. Grandma always said to improvise when I come up short. It paid off too.
