Easy Sauerbraten-Style Meat Loaf

My friend Kathy in Delaware shared this recipe with me. It’s a delicious, easy to assemble alternative to the German specialty. There’s nothing like a good meat loaf. Comfort food, don’t you think?

     Easy Sauerbraten-Style Meat Loaf 

  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup gingersnap crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 3 Tbsp. dried parsely flakes
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. caraway seed, crushed
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. bulk pork sausage
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, gingersnap crumbs, chopped onion, shredded carrot, parsley flakes, balsamic vinegar, salt and caraway seed.

Add ground beef and pork sausage, mix well. Pat mixture into a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Top with sliced tomato. Bake, uncovered for 60 to 70 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into center of loaf registers 170 degrees. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Lift from pan with large spatula. Cut in squares to serve. Makes 8 servings.
