Grandma's Meatloaf

I used to hate meatloaf. I couldn't look at it without gagging, but when I got married my husband would ask for it all the time. He looooves meatloaf. Because of my loathing for it I had no idea how to make it so I would always just recommend something else. We've been married almost 7 years and finally a few months ago I decided to learn how to make meatloaf. For this task I went to my grandma. She's a great cook and I knew she would know how to make it. I want to share with you her recipe just incase you can't make meatloaf and the men in your life have been asking for it (smiles)

Turkey or beef (the amount will vary depending on how many you're making for)
4 pieces of bread (white or wheat)
half an onion (I don't really like onion so I actually use 1/4 of an onion) cut this in little pieces
An egg (or two) also depending on how much meat you use
Seasoning Salt and pepper

Put all ingredients in a large bowl. Wet the bread into a ball so you can tear random pieces from it into the mixture. Cut the onion into little pieces. The egg and seasoning as well. Mix all ingredients well (usually with your hands) then pour out into a loaf shape into a 9x13 pan and cook for an hour until the onion is tender and the meat is cooked through.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Are there meals you can't stand but someone you love has been asking for you to make it? Try making it but with your own spin on it? Serving when it's inconvienent or when you don't want to causes growth in your walk with God and the people in your life will feel special when you go out of your way to do something just because they love it :)

Try it! You just might like it.
