Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine bread crumbs, 1/3 cup of the buttermilk and the egg. Let soak 5 minutes.

2. In large bowl, combine meatloaf mix, crumbled sausage, onion, Worcestershire, oregano, 1/2 tsp of the garlic salt and 1/2 tsp of the pepper. Gently stir in bread crumb mixture. Fit meat mixture into a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan and smooth top.

3. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until meatloaf is 150 degrees. Let rest, covered, 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover by an inch. Salt water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 12 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to pot. Add remaining 1 cup buttermilk, the butter, remaining 1 tsp garlic salt and remaining 1/2 tsp pepper. Mash to desired consistency.

5. Prepare gravy mix following package directions. Remove meatloaf from pan, discarding drippings. Slice and serve with mashed potatoes and gravy.
