  1. Place bread in a large bowl and pour milk over top, just until pieces are moistened, soak for several minutes. Add ground beef, Vienna sausage, eggs, Cheddar cheese, pickles, bell pepper, raisins, salt, and pepper. Mix together until thoroughly combined.

  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of beef mixture to the hot skillet, cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 4 to 6 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.

  3. Press remaining beef mixture into 2 loaf pans and cover with aluminum foil.

  4. Fill the water reservoir of a steamer and place loaf pans in the steam tray, using multiple tiers if necessary. Steam meatloaves until no longer pink in the center, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Allow loaves to cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  5. Slice loaves into 1/2-inch slices and fry in a hot, nonstick skillet.
