This is a mixture that you can use for a multitude of meaty things – meatloaf and
meatballs being the most obvious. But with a few tweaks you can make this go in
a variety of directions – here is the basic formula. To serve 4-6 you’ll need:
1 Lb. 80/20 ground beef (don’t go for the lean stuff; fat = flavor)
½ Lb. pork sausage
2 eggs, beaten
1 C. panko bread crumbs or fine bread crumbs
¼ C. milk or cream
½ small onion, fine dice
Salt, pepper, herbs to taste (you might not need much depending on the spiciness
in your sausage)
In a large bowl mix the beef and pork together – your hands work best here – then
add the beaten eggs. In a small bowl mix the crumbs and cream together, then
combine that with the meat mixture along with the onions. You can form this into
a meatloaf and bake for 1 hour at 350, or make it into meatballs to be simmered
in sauce or baked in the oven. You can glaze the meatloaf with a mixture of
ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard, you can mix in a cup of sautéed diced
mushrooms, you can get your meatballs into a hoagie… can go nuts once you
have this basic formula down. Experiment, and have fun with your meat!!
