It’s a pork sausage version of my favorite meatloaf recipe and it’s awesome with pancakes, omelets, French toast and on a Brunch Burger.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds lean pork sausage
  • ⅓ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ chopped white onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
  2. 2 Place pork sausage, bread crumbs, onion, egg, and shallot in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in buttermilk; mix thoroughly. Pat mixture gently into the prepared loaf pan; top with ketchup.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until edges are bubbling, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). Cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

Chef's Notes

If you have leftovers, slice and wrap and place in freezer for future weekend brunches. Reheat in a grill pan; You can use panko bread crumbs in this recipe.


  1. What a fun addition to your brunch table. I used turkey sausage and topped it with Sriracha ketchup and cheese using individual loaf pans. Thank you for the recipe.
