Instead of fine dry bread crumbs I used 5 grain soda crackers whisked in the blender for the bread crumbs. Instead of grated onion I used finely chopped up green onions, and 2 cloves of mashed garlic and black pepper and about a 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese. Simple ingredients and yet quite a tasty meatloaf. I also ground my own beef. I really like the addition of freshly ground nutmeg in the sauce.
