If your landing here as a result of hearing The Hungry Hoosier on RadioMom 91.1 FM, welcome. Take some time to look around, there's lots here. If you are looking for the recently featured recipe for Mom's Meatloaf, here it it. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

Mom’s Meatloaf

  • 1 lb. ground beef,

  • 1/2 lb. ground sausage

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 6 tbs. finely chopped onion

  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 cups crushed corn flakes

  • 3 eggs well beaten

Place ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with hands. Shape into a rectangle shaped loaf (about 10” x 4” x 2” high) and place in a 9-13 oven-proof baking dish. Cover with one-half of sauce (see recipe below), and bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes. 


  • 2 cups catsup

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3 tbs. white vinegar

  • 2 tbs. sugar

  • 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients to a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Pour half of sauce on loaf prior to baking. Preserve the other half to serve with the meatloaf. 

Note: I’ve tied this recipe using ground turkey, turkey sausage (usually available in the freezer section), and egg substitutes. It works well and reduces the fat and cholesterol.
