Depression Meatloaf

While (attempting to) clean out my recipe drawer, I came across this recipe, which I had copied several years ago. I don't remember if the original recipe was in a cookbook - magazine - website - or where! It is one of MANY recipes I have saved, but have not gotten around to trying -yet!
It uses basic ingredients, but sounds quite tasty!
It is easy, AND economical, which is always a plus!
If you try it, please let me know how you like it!

*The original recipe did not call for the egg; I think eggs were in short supply during the depression. Maybe the canned milk helps it hold together? Anyway, I added the egg to the recipe just in case I had inadvertantly not copied the recipe correctly!
