Meat Loaf

From 1922:

I mix 3 pounds ground beef, 1 cup cracker crumbs (stale bread crumbs will do) ½ cup sweet milk, 2 tablespoons lard or cooking oil, and lastly two well beaten eggs. I grind the meat through my chopper or get the butcher to grind it for me. When it is all thoroughly mixed, I knead it just as I do biscuit dough, to make it firm. Form into loaf and bake in moderate oven about one hour. –Mrs. O.H.W.
