This is a nice alternative to meatloaf or a cheaper version of a roast. Easy to make and very tasty.

this is quick and fairly easy to fix. the only issue i had was with handling the meat mixture--it was loose and very tricky to roll in the breadcrumbs due to the juice that grating the onions created. if i make this again, i will drain off the juice. it came out good and meaty--even DH-approved! (and he's not much of a meatloaf fan!) made for the bargain basement tag game.
