MeasureIngredient
Beef bouillion;
½ cup Boiling water
2 slices Bread; crumbled fine
1½ pounds 85% lean ground beef;
2 mediums Eggs; beaten slightly
½ cup Onion; chopped finely
¼ cup Celery; chopped finely
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce;
1 tablespoon Catup

Preheat oven to 350 f degree. Line a shallow 8-inch baking pan with foil. Dissolve beef bouillion cube in boiling water in a large bowl.

Add all other ingrediets except the catsup and blend well with a fork. Turn onto foil in pan and, with hands, shape quickly into a 6 by 4½ inch by 2 inch loaf. With the dull edge of a knife make a crisscross pattern across the top, spread with catup across the top.

Cover loaf with a tent of foil that does not touch the top. Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil; bake, uncovered, another 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 2-3 minutes before serving. Using this molded metheod instead of loaf pan allows the fat to drain from the loaf, whereas a loaf pan retains fat.
