Many people cringe when they hear the term "meat loaf", but it's one of my favorite foods that Mom made while I was growing up. I love the ketchup topping, and the loaf freezes well. -Daria Burcar Rochester, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Press into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Spread with ketchup; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160° and meat is no longer pink. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Meat loaf may be frozen for up to 3 months.
