I got this from a Pilsbury hamburger cookbook and it sounds good and easy.

I made some minor changes in that I used 750 grams very lean mince/ground beef, 1 egg (because that was all I had left), 2/3 cup breadcrumbs mixed with some Italian seasoning, 1/2 a small onion finely chopped (a little more than a 1/4 cup), a good grind of pepper and a 580 gram of basil and garlic pasta sauce (would cut this back as it was a little 2 rich in the tomato with the cup of sauce also added to the meat mix), these quantities worked well for me and gave a good textured meatloaf and cooked up beautifully at 175C fan forced in an hour and served 5 of us, thank you Margie99, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
