1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 or 2 garlic cloves, peeled and put through a garlic press
A shot or two of catsup
A little salt
A lot of fresh ground pepper
Enough Italian bread crumbs to make a firm mixture
When everything is well blended, put the meat mixture into a greased loaf pan or casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes; spread more catsup on the top and bake for 15 minutes more.
Note to Ben: Baked potatoes are a good accompaniment, and just happen to bake for 1 hour at 350.
