Best meatloaf

Last night, Kim and I fixed the best meatloaf!

He had bought a whole sirloin tip a while back, and cut a roast off of it. The roast was very tasty, but tough, and we ended up grinding it for meat spread.
But we still had a big piece of the tip left in the freezer, so Kim thawed it and ground it up for meatloaf, adding pork sausage to moisten it up a little. It was very, very good. Here's how we made it:

Best Meat Loaf

Connie

2+ lbs of ground sirloin tip
1 lb. pork roll sausage
2 eggs
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
2 tbls mustard
tsp ea. salt & pepper
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1 cup catsup, divided

Dump all in together, reserving cup of catsup. Mix well, divide in half and form into two loaves. Place in sprayed baking dish, cover, and put in 350 oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven, and dump out any grease. Top with remaining catsup and put back in oven uncovered for 15 more minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 140. Remove from oven, cover and let stand 10-15 minutes.

You're making my mouth water. Nothing beats freshly ground meat for making meatloaf and your recipe looks great. I've never tried Ritz crackers in mine, but I'll have to do so.

When I make Tex-Mex meatloaf, I use crushed tortilla chips as a binder and salsa instead of ketchup or tomato sauce. Weally, weally good.

That's far out... could I take a peak at the recipe? I seem to be having a problem finding a good recipe lately.

I'll look for it, Mav. It might have a copyright, so I might have to PM it to you. It's really, really good. (Said that already, didn't I?)

That's cool, thanks! I am just very sad because we went to Old Country Buffet awhile back and their meatloaf was better than mine :(
