Meatloaf with Italian Sausage and Beef

I had some cooked sweet Italian sausage and
a pound of ground beef in the refrigerator.
So I quickly put this meatloaf together and
let it cook uncovered in the oven for an hour.
I used a food processor to mince the vegetables.
Sometimes the slap bang recipies come out good,
this one makes for a moist and tasty meatloaf.

1 small onion, peeled and minced
1 small carrot, peeled and minced
1 stalk of celery, minced
1/2 cup rolled oats, minced
1 pound of ground beef 85/15
2 cooked Italian sausage links, minced
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 cup tomato ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mince onion,celery and carrot and
place into a mixing bowl.
Add minced rolled oats, sausage, tomato
sauce and minced green bell pepper.
Add garlic, pepper and Old Bay Seasoning.
Mix together just until it holds together.
Place mixture into a glass baking dish,
form into a meatloaf shape of your liking.
Top with tomato ketchup.
Bake uncovered for about one hour.
Remove and let rest 15 minutes
before slicing and serving.
