|Ready to be chopped|
|Sauteed carrots,celery and onions|
|Ready to be baked meatloaf.I made a big one and a baby one|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large heavy skillet cook the onion, celery, carrot, garlic, and scallions in butter, over medium heat, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Cover the skillet and stir occasionally until the carrots are tender, about 5 more minutes. Stir in salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce,1/3 cup of ketchup and Sriracha hot sauce. Cook for 1 more minute. In a large bowl,remove sausages from casing and combine the meats, eggs, vegetables, bread crumbs, and parsley. Form into a loaf and put into a rectangular baking pan with 2-inch high sides. Cover the loaf with remaining ketchup. Bake the meatloaf in the oven for about an hour. Make sure the internal temperature is between 160-170 degrees F. To do this,you'll need a kitchen or meat thermometer.
|Dinner is served!!It was super delicious.|
|Oven toasted bread for crumbs|
*To get fresh bread crumbs,you can toast a store bought bread of your choice(french,whole wheat, chiabatta,italian) for 15-20 minutes till its brown.
This recipe is for a spicy meatloaf so if you prefer not having as much spice,you can make this recipe without using the hot sauce.The spicy italian sausages have a little kick of spice to them..not enough to burn your mouth.So,enjoy trying this recipe out and do let me know how it goes.
