Meat Loaf

My mother in law gave me this recipe when I got married and I really like it.  It is really basic and doesn't have a sauce on top, so if you like a saucy meatloaf this might not be for you!!

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs (you could also use 3/4 c. cracker crumbs or 1/3 cup oatmeal)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small onion diced
1 egg
1 can tomato sauce, 8 oz

Combine all ingredients and put into a loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

You can also turn this into a Hamburger cheese roll by:

Pat meat mixture out on waxed paper, make into rectangle as wide as a loaf pan.  Sprinkle with one cup of grated cheese.  Roll up and seal edges!!
