The original recipe for this meatloaf was found in the book that came with Miracle Maid waterless cookware. Originally, the meatloaf was cooked in a demo electric frying pan in butter with potatoes around it. In the 1970s, home cookware demonstrations brought families extra cash. Demonstrator wives helped men cook all-in-one meals, which was the heart of the sales pitch -- cookware that could make dinner easy enough for a man to make. However, no one read the company instructions! Each cooking demonstrator gave the newest audience a quick demo of the meal and sent them off to make their millions, and each version was a little different. The following is a recipe version that was passed down by word of mouth.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl. It will look quite sloppy.

Mix well with a spoon. It is beneficial to knead this mix like bread dough. The more you knead the ingredients, the firmer the meat loaf you will obtain.

Place the meat in a loaf pan and cook for about 45 minutes.
