It was a tasty meatloaf. I thought the carrots were a nice addition. I used mild Italian sausage for the hot sausage and had to skim off the fat a few times as it cooked. The sauce was a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I make it (and there definitely will be a next time} I think I will cut back a bit on the sugar and wait to put the sauce on the top until it is nearly cooked through and I have de-fatted the juices.
I only used 1/4 c. instead of 1/2 c. mustard in the topping. This is a delicious change for us!
Followed this to the letter--very easy & very Tasty. A pleasant change from ho-hum meatloaf. The zip from the hot sausage was a great addition & went well with the combo of flavors in the topping.
