Meatloaf on the egg is one of our favorites and a must do for anyone who hasn't tried it before. Simple and delicious every time.

    Not for the cholesterol-conscious. This is good cold too.

    • 1 lb ground chuck
    • ¼ Cup Worcestershire sauce
    • ½ lb ground pork
    • ¼ Cup Dijon mustard
    • ½ lb ground veal
    • 1 Cup shredded mild cheese (I mix Colby cheddar & Monterey jack)**
    • 10 Oz andouille sausage, coarsely chopped*
    • 3 large egg yolks
    • 1 ½ Cup diced yellow onion
    • ½ Cup minced fresh parsley
    • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
    • ½ tsp ground Chipotle
    • ½ Cup diced red pepper
    • ½ tsp ground cumin
    • 2 Tbs olive oil (or bacon grease)
    • Salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
    • 3 Tbs sour cream
    *Three Aidells sausages. Substitute any cooked sausage; chop in food processor.

    Preparation Directions:
    • Sauté onion & garlic in olive oil until lightly browned; add red pepper & sauté until soft. Season with salt and pepper. Cool.
    • Mix cooked vegetables with other ingredients. Pack into a 9x5x3" loaf pan lined with foil or plastic wrap. Chill for several hours.

    Cooking Directions:
    • Turn loaf onto a shallow pan.
    • Heat Egg to 200º dome. Add a few chunks smoking wood (I like red oak) if desired. Put meat loaf on the fire & gradually increase dome temp to 300º over 20 minutes or so.
    • Cook until the loaf's internal temperature is 150º. This takes an hour to an hour and a half.
    • Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

    Special Instructions:
    • Serve with Jimsberry finishing sauce if desired.
    My sauce of choice with brisket, pulled pork & meat loaf.

    • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
    • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
    • ¼ Cup melted fat (bacon grease, or rendered beef or pork fat)
    • 1Cup ketchup
    • ¼ Cup Worcestershire
    • ¼ Cup cider vinegar
    • 3 Tbs mustard (I use Country Dijon)

    Preparation Directions:
    • Sauté onion and garlic in a little bacon grease until soft & browned.
    • Stir in ketchup, Worcestershire, vinegar & mustard.
    • Simmer for ? hour to 45 minutes.
    • Stir in remaining melted fat and simmer another 15 minutes.
