Here is the recipe. I put this in this blog years ago and only a few thought they might like it. I expect the same today but...we like it. It you have ever eaten S-tau-ff*ers meatloaf, this is very like it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Approx. 1 1/2 to 1 3/4th lb. of at least 85% lean..preferably 90% lean ground beef. Not the 73% fat. The loaf would be swimming in grease.
1 small 8 oz. can of tomato sauce..not paste.
1 medium chopped onion. (I use a fairly large one. Personal preference.)
1 tea. black pepper
1/2 tea onion salt, if desired
1 tea. regular salt, or to taste.
1 tea. oregano
1 Tbls. parsley
1 tea. garlic powder
2/3's cup bread plain crumbs...not flavored.
1 as a minimum egg or 2 eggs if desired broken into the meat mixture. 1 is great if that's all you have. I use one.
Maybe 1/3 of a green pepper chopped if desired.
A piece of bay leaf maybe an inch or so long if desired. Leave unbroken, so you can pull it out later.
Meanwhile have a good brand of ketchup set aside:
Mix all ingredients together. I put on latex gloves and mix with my hands.
Place mixed ingredients in a loaf pan or in a glass casserole dish.
Smooth top of meat mixture and add ketchup to the top of loaf in a ribbon -look across the top of the entire loaf. Smooth with a wooden spoon. Add more if desired. Ours is usually covered well. Bake 60 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf shows 160 degrees on the thermometer.
It's our fave, but my lower lip won't be stuck out if it's not to your liking.
