from Southern Food

* 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
* 1 cup milk
* 1/4 cup finely minced onion
* 1 teaspoon butter
* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon chili sauce
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon curry powder > used garlic powder instead
* 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger > eliminated this
* ketchup, chili sauce, or prepared mustard for topping


Mix bread crumbs and milk; let stand. Sauté onion in skillet in the butter. Combine bread crumb mixture, onion, ground beef, egg, 1 tablespoon chili sauce, salt, pepper, curry powder, and ginger.

Blend well. Shape into a loaf in a greased shallow baking dish. Spread a thin coat of mustard, ketchup, or chili sauce over the loaf. Sprinkle lightly with bread crumbs.

Bake meatloaf at 350° for 50 to 60 minutes.
Serves 4.

I’ve made different versions of meat loaf over the years, but this is my family’s favorite.
