Sunday Meatloaf

What you need:
  • 1 cup stewed tomatoes (I use 1 can diced tomatoes, drained)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Ketchup
Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Crumble bacon over mixture and mix well.
  2. Shape into a loaf in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish.
  3. Drizzle with ketchup.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
**I also like green bell peppers and onions in my meatloaf - it's really up to you. :)
