The binder is the pork sausage and the cooked meatloaf can be sliced into firm, slices that don't fall apart.

Good gravy can be had by mixing a cup of water with a rounded teaspoon of cornstarch disolved in it. For the taste, use a tspn of "Better than boullion"(beef version) and stir it in.....good luck.

Interesting. I'll try the sausage next time.

I usually use the cubed bread like in your recipe but I soak it in milk first. I find this helps to bind and also keeps the meatloaf moist too.

If a guy used whole wheat bread would it screw it up?

Shouldn't be a problem. I use whatever is on hand; whole wheat bread, white bread, cubed hamburger buns. Years ago,
my Mom made meat loaf using rolled oats. I can't remember how much she used.

My mother made meatloaf using sausage years ago. When most of the family was home she made quite a large meatloaf and there was enough left over to make meatloaf sandwiches which have become one of my favorites. Four or five years ago I started using mild Italian sausage and I stuck with it.
