In this preparation, we will use 3 pounds of sausage and 4 pounds of ground beef. It might seem like a lot. But this is a good amount to make a couple of meals, or if you need to prepare food for a larger number of people.

Start by cutting the sausage into small bits. To do that efficiently, we recommend that you use your hands. It is therefore important to make sure that your hands are completely clean. Continue to work the mixture properly until it is all mixed.

After it is all mixed in, you can prepare any type of meal ranging from meatloaf to meatballs. The applications are endless.
