I never seem to get a good picture of the finished product.. oh well, it tasted wonderful.  Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned Comfort Meal!

Here's what you need.
1 pound ground beef 90-10%
1/2 pound pork sausage  (I used RB Rice Medium Spice)
1 sleeve soda crackers-ground into crumbs
1/3 cup your favorite BBQ sauce (I used Mauls)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 cup diced onion (generous)
2 large cloves of garlic minced
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and Pepper to taste

Pre Heat Oven 350 degrees

First melt butter in small frying pan and add diced onions and cook with medium to low heat until onions begin to brown.  Turn off heat and add diced garlic and stir.  Set aside to cool.

In medium bowl add hamburger and sausage, blend; add remaining ingredients, including onion garlic mixture and mix well.

Form meat into a loaf and place in a lined baking pan. (not shown)

Place in oven for 1 hr to 1 hr and 15 minutes.  For the last 15 minutes:  Remove from oven and top with your favorite meatloaf topping, ie tomato paste, tomato sauce, pizza sauce, salsa, BBQ sauce, your favorite cheese... the list is endless..

**you can also add 1/2 cup of your favorite cheeses to the meat mixture.  Another suggestion is use Salsa, Chopped Jalapeno Peppers and Taco seasoning, topped with Pepper Jack Cheese.  Leaving out the BBQ sauce and Worcestershire Sauce in the meat mixture..
