I dug up an oldie but goodie. My grandma was a great cook. This meal is one she used to cook on cold days because the oven helped warm the house.


¾ cup milk

1 ½ cups soft breadcrumbs

2 lbs ground beef

½ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 – 4 oz. can mushrooms

¼ cup catsup

1 – 12 oz. pk onion soup mix

2 eggs beaten


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.   Pour milk over breadcrumbs; add beef, salt, pepper, mushrooms and juice, catsup, soup mix and eggs.   Mix well. Put into a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.   Bake at 300 degrees for an hour and a half until done.   It really doesn’t have to be cold to cook this one.
