My grandmother made the best meatloaf ever.  It's just one of those dishes that make me think of her.  Now it's my turn to make it for her.

Grandma's Meatloaf:

2 pounds of ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup, minus some for the top of the meatloaf
1 egg
1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasonings
1/3 red onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, crushed.
salt and pepper to taste

Dump everything into the meat and mix well.  I form my meatloaf in less of a "loaf" shape and more of a large patty.  I do it because everyone likes to get the end piece of meatloaf and this way there's more crunchy bits for everyone to get.  After the meatloaf is formed and in the baking pan top with some of the remaining ketchup.

Bake at 350* for 40-45 minutes.  Drain grease from the pan before serving.
