Wow, that sounds gourmet :).

The way my mom makes it is by feel, not by measuring (so i couldn't really
give the recipe). But it's generally a pound of beef, an egg, some
saltines (crumbled), ketchup (and any spice you please), onion, and bell
peppers (green or red). That is mixed until it's loose, but can hold a
loaf shape. It's toped with strips of bacon and tomato sauce and then
baked until throughly cooked.  I love it, it's so juicy and moist. We
traditionally serve it with green beans and bacon, and baked potatoes.
