Meat Loaf


1 1/2 c slice white bread (crumbed or cut in small pieces)
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c chopped green bell pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ground thyme
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 can tomato soup
3/4 c celery (chopped finely)
3/4 c carrots (grated)
1 egg (beaten)

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and about 1/2 of the tomato soup. Mix well using your hands. Form meat mixture into a loaf and place into a greased meat loaf baking pan and pour remaining tomato soup over the top. Bake for 1 hour or until meat is done. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Variations: You can replace tomato soup with ketchup or barbecue sauce. Instead of using celery, you can use parsley.
