Mom's Meatloaf

This is the homeliest of home cooking, but Ben wanted the recipe...

1 lb. ground beef
2 eggs
1 or 2 garlic cloves, peeled and put through a garlic press
A shot or two of catsup
A pinch of oregano
A lot of fresh ground pepper (no need to add any salt)
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.

*New discovery: Top with some Spicy Indian Ketchup instead of regular American ketchup/catsup
