Thanks to Deanna Reynolds for this recipe!
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 cup Coloma Frozen Foods Diced Onion
- 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
- 1 tablespoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 pounds Dewig's Pork Sausage
- 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 1/2 cup Dewig's Spicy BBQ Sauce
- 4-5 strips Dewig's Bacon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine egg and milk in a small bowl.
- In a large bowl, combine sausage, bread crumbs, onion, Cajun seasoning, pepper, and salt. Mix, but do not over mix.
- Add Tabasco sauce to egg mixture. Then pour egg mixture into meat mixture.
- Mix well, but do not over mix.
- Spray 9x9 pan or 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
- Form meat into a loaf shape, and place in sprayed dish.
- (Optional: Chop bacon pieces into 1/2" by 1/2" cubes.) Place bacon on top of meatloaf.
- Bake for 50 minutes.
- Remove meatloaf from oven.
- Turn on broiler to low. Place meatloaf under broiler for 15 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.
- Remove meatloaf from oven and let cool at least 5 minutes before serving. Please note that there will be a color differentation in the meat loaf from the top to the middle. Where the bacon is touching the sausage (top of meatloaf) you will notice a lighter pink ring. There is no problem with that ring, it is just the reaction between a cured product (bacon) and a raw product (sausage).
- Top with ketchup, BBQ Sauce or Tabasco if desired.
