  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except ground beef; mix well. Add ground beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Press into 8x4 inch loaf pan; bake 1 hour. Drain; let stand 5 minutes. NOTE: This recipe appeared in Ann Landers advice column in the newspaper many years ago. The original recipe called for one cup of tomato juice, but I prefer to substitute ketchup and water. You can also substitute ½ lb. ground turkey for an equivalent amount of ground beef. If ground turkey is used, increase salt slightly.
