2 lbs. hamburger
1 lb. pork sausage or Italian sausage (not hot)*
2 eggs
1 c milk
7 pieces of white bread, cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tsp. salt
tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Italian herb mix
Chili sauce (optional)

Mix together the milk and eggs. Add the cubed bread and mix together until all the liquid is absorbed. Add the spices and mix in. Add the meat and rest of the ingredients. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Put mixture into a 9 x 13 pan and shape into a loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for about 2 hours.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Use a good quality sausage or Italian sausage. It makes a big difference in the taste of the meatloaf. I like to pour Chili Sauce over the top before baking. This is one time you don't want to use extra lean beef because the meatloaf will be too dry. Best to use white bread - other types of bread will change the flavor of the meatloaf.
