Standard fare at church suppers throughout the region. New England meat loaves often use crushed crackers rather than bread crumbs as a binder. Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. Produces 2 servings Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl whisk together the egg, the onion, the bell pepper, 2 tablespoons of the ketchup, the saltines, the Worcestershire sauce, the salt, and pepper to taste, add the chuck, and blend the mixture with your hands until it is just combined (do not over mix). Form the mixture into an 8" x 4" loaf in a shallow baking pan, spread the remaining tablespoon ketchup over it, and drape the bacon pieces across the loaf. Bake the meat loaf in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes. Posted to MM-Recipes Digest V5 #016 by (Best Image) on Jan 16, 1998
