- Serves 8
- 2 cups freshly made bread crumbs
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1½ tsp dry mustard
- 1½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp freshly ground pepper

Omit the Worcestershire sauce and add ½ cup grated cheese.

After patting the loaf into the pan, cover with 4 strips uncooked bacon.
