The recipe I used comes from The Better Homes and Gardens: The New Cook Book. It is the Create-Your-Own Meat Loaf recipe. Which is what I have done. :-)
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup finely crushed Crunchmaster Rice Crackers
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely shredded carrot
1/2 tsp oregano or other herb you like
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground white pepper or regular black pepper
1 lb. ground beef
In a mixing bowl combine egg; crushed crackers, milk; onion and carrot, and if desired; herb; salt and pepper. Add ground meat and mix well.
Put mixture into a loaf pan. Pat down and smooth out.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until no pink remains.
Transfer to a serving plate so meat is not sitting in grease. Serves 4.
An easy way to crush the crackers is to put them in wax paper and roll a glass back and forth over them.
When I need to use only a part of an onion in a recipe, I freeze the extra in wedges. It is very easy to cut up the onion while it is still frozen. No tears and you can chop it very finely.
