I woke up thinking creole and cajun. I then thought why not combine it in a meatloaf. This was a huge success! The meatloaf was so flavorful and the creole sauce took it over the top. I served it with fried cabbage and mashed potatoes. I put the creole sauce on the meatloaf and the mashed potatoes.

How to Make Cajun Meatloaf with Creole Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix up all meatloaf ingredients. Shape into a loaf. Place in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 mins, remove foil and bake about 10 to 15 mins to brown. Remove and let it rest for about 10 mins.
  2. While the meatloaf is in the oven, start cooking the creole sauce.
  3. In a skillet saute the trinity (peppers, onions and celery) in the bacon grease until tender.
  4. Add the flour and stir it in until blended.
  5. Next, add the tomatoes and tomato sauce.
  6. Add all of the remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 mins.
  7. It's taste time! Taste the creole sauce and and add more tabassco to your liking or let folks add the heat on their own.
  8. Next time, I make this I am going to try all beef and see which I like best. I hope that you enjoy this flavorful dish.
