Zesty Sausage Loaf - American Family Cookbook
I made this for dinner 03-28-14. Very Good!!
2 pounds lean bulk pork sausage
4 cups soft bread crumbs (If using regular breadcrumbs reduce the amount to make a nice meat loaf consistency.)
2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
6 bacon slices
1 cup dairy sour cream
Combine sausage, bread crumbs, egg, lemon peel, salt, and paprika in a bowl; mix thoroughly.
Shape mixture into a loaf and place in a 11x7 inch baking pan. Lay the bacon slices crosswise on top of loaf. Pour about 1 1/2 cups hot water in the bottom of the pan. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer. Pour off liquid. Spoon sour cream over top of loaf and bake 15 minutes longer.
Remove to a warm serving platter.
Makes about 6 servings.
