  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup (see Options)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except ketchup; mix well. Press mixture evenly into a 9" x 5" loaf pan; spread ketchup over top.
  3. Bake 60 to 65 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear. Remove from oven, drain, and allow to sit 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
