A new cookbook and a wonderful meatloaf recipe!

Once again, I have been given a wonderful new cookbook.
This cookbook is full of wonderful little stories about Trisha's family and about the recipe , with some of the best "home cookin" recipes. My friend, who gave this book to me, told me that out of all of the meatloaves she has made in her time, this has to be the best. I fixed it last week when we had guests, and she was right. It was wonderful.
2 pounds lean ground beef 20 saltine crackers, crumbled
1 large egg, lightly beaten 1/4 cup ketchup
1 tbs. yellow mustard 1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper 1 medium onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 350.F
Gently mix the beef, cracker crumbs, egg, ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper, and onion until blended. Shape the mixture into two loaves and place side by side crosswise in a 9x13x2 inch pan. Bake the loaves for 1 hour, or until they are browned. Transfer to a platter immediately and allow to cool slightly and firm up before slicing. Enjoy!
