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. _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- 'The beginning calls for courage; the end demands care'
