How to Make Depression Meatloaf
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, pour milk over the bread. Let stand until the milk is absorbed.
- Add onion, salt and pepper. Stir with a fork until bread softens and is light and fluffy.
- Mix in ground beef; stir in beaten egg. Shape into a loaf. Place in lightly greased baking dish.
- Spread loaf with ketchup; top with bacon strips. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- *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!
