½ Pound Hamburger
½ Pound Ground Pork
½ Pound Ground Veal
1 medium onion diced
Enough Bread crumbs to stiffen the mixture (about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons red pepper
2 teaspoons celery seed or 1 stalk celery diced very fine
1-15 oz can stewed tomatoes
2-little cans tomato sauce
Mix all the meat, the onion, the eggs, the bread crumbs, the salt, the pepper, the red pepper and the celery in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix and squish the mixture to get a good even mix (make sure to wash first). Add more bread crumbs if loaf seams too wet. Form mixture into a football. Toss up and the air and allow to land solidly in your hands as you shape it. This gets out any air bubbles. Toss for about 2 minutes. Place in baking pan.
Open stewed tomatoes and make sure tomatoes are cut up. Pour on top of meat loaf. Pour 2 cans of tomato sauce on top. Cover with foil, in such a way as the foil does not touch the loaf (toothpicks help). Place in oven preheated to 350 degrees. Cook for 2 hours. Serve. Goes great with mashed potato’s. Slice loaf and cover with some of the leavings. Use the leavings on the mash potatos.
Add hot sauce to spice it up. Sausage can also be used for additional zing!
