2 lbs. Lean ground beef ( I use ground chuck ), 1 stalk celery diced. 1 small onion chopped. 2 whole eggs, beaten. 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper. 1/4 cup milk. about 10 saltine crackers, crushed. 1 can cream of mushroom soup
in a large bowl, combine all but the mushroom soup. mixing til well blended. shape into a loaf in a large pan or crock pot. cover with mushroom soup. do not dilute. Bake in 350 degree oven covered for about 45-55 min. is done when juices are running clear. (no pink) If you put it in the crock pot just leave it on low for 2-3 hours. This makes its own gravy.
now how easy was that?
