"My mom gave me this recipe, and everyone agrees it is the best ever, I think it's because of the Italian sausage. It's great the next day too. But we usually don't have many leftovers." — D.DETMANN

1 1/4 pounds
4 (4 ounce) links
Italian sausage, casings removed
green bell pepper, chopped
dry hot wheat cereal
salt and pepper to taste
I am the one that submitted this recipe, and I would like to add that you really need to use MILD
Italian sausages or it becomes way to hot. Also, I used dry cream of wheat cereal, and do not over mix, but mix well enough to get the cereal mixed in well enough. I also cook it for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. I let it stand for about 10 minutes before serving because it taste better when it is not so hot. Enjoy!
MY husband liked it a lot but I wasn't so crazy about it. I need to alter it.
OK, my turn.. I live part time in The Villages, Florida where there are many, many golf courses and country clubs. One of the newer country clubs serves a meatloaf that is an exact replica of this one! It is one of the most popular dishes
that are ordered.
I tried this one since it sounded like it would pretty much match theirs. WoW!! My husband couldn't believe I made it. It is amazingly delicious. I am SO happy I found it. It's the same size coming out as it is going in. How many recipes can claim that? It's HUGE.
Cold sandwiches the next day were excellent. Can't wait to make it again.
Just try it.. you won't be sorry!
I have 4 kids and a hubby and we loved it, I did make a couple modifications. 1/2 gr pepper (instead of 1), very finely chopped, 1 large onion (instead of regular), finely chopped, (the kids don't notice them). 2 tbsp soya sauce instead of worcestershire. 2 lbs ground beef (instead of 1 1/4). 1/2 cup dry not hot cream of wheat. Put a little BBQ sauce on top before putting in oven. All other ingredients stayed the same.
Put in 8x8 glass pan and baked 1 hour at 350. Just perfect and moist.
Thanks for the great recipe!
This meatloaf has a nice flavor and texture; I think the cream of wheat cereal is the key. I microwaved the onions and green peppers before adding them to make sure they would be well cooked. Possibly next time I'll bake at a lower temperature, as all the sides of the loaf were a bit tough. Adding Italian seasonings, garlic, and topping with ketchup before baking gives even more of an Italian flavor. Thanks!
Just love this. I use this for making meatballs. The one thing I found was, when using the hot wheat cereal, it made the meatballs more moist. I also tried it with bread crumbs and another time with crutons. Although they were good, the ones with the Wheat cereal, was even better.
I used bread crumbs instead of the wheat. It worked out fine. Very good.
The suasage is a great twist on standard meatloaf. It wasn't overpowering and gave it a great taste. I was afraid the pork would dry it out, but it was just as moist as I hoped. I had Italian breadcrumbs, so I used that in place of the cereal. Will certainly make again.
