Church Lady Meatloaf!

I call this "Church Lady Meatloaf" because the recipe was from a sweet 'church lady' that played the organ in the church we went to when I was growing up.   She was a wonderful a cook and had some great recipes. 
 This is a very different meatloaf from the one I have posted before that is my sister in law's recipe, but it might be one that some of you who thought that one was a bit sweet or whatever, might enjoy better.  This does make a big meatloaf so it's good for company or a potluck or church supper!  This one is also great for leftover meatloaf sandwiches.   I enjoy the sandwich the next day sometimes even better.  Here is what you will need for this meatloaf:
1 lb. ground chuck
1 lb. ground sausage (like breakfast type sausage)
1 medium sweet onion, diced fine
1 small jar pimento, drained and diced fine
1/2 green bell pepper, diced fine
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
1 cup fine bread crumbs (could use Italian bread crumbs or oats)
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 cup tomato ketchup
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the meatloaf ingredients until well blended.  Shape into a large loaf and place in a baking dish.  Mix the topping ingredients and spread over the top of the loaf.  Place in a 350 degree oven and bake uncovered for 1 hour.   Transfer to serving platter, slice and serve.
The other meatloaf recipe I mentioned that is on the site is here, in case you have not seen it before:  The Perfect Meatloaf
