This recipe came from a cookbook compiled by my sorority sisters. Leftovers, if there are any, make delicious sandwiches. - Janet Clatney, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first three ingredients. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add the onion, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Pat half into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Combine filling ingredients; spoon over meat mixture. pat remaining meat mixture over filling. bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 16°; drain. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
If you don't own an egg separator, crack an egg into a funnel over a bowl. The yolk will stay in the funnel and the while will pass through.
