Mom's Meatloaf

Start 3 hours before dinner!

1 lb hamburger
1 T minced onion
1 egg
1 sl fresh bread crumbs, white
salt and pepper to taste

Mix ingredients lightly and form loaf. Heat pan. Put loaf in it.

Slice thickly (1/4-1/3")
1/2 onion
Press on top of loaf like this: OOO

1 sm can tomato sauce
over the loaf.

Put lid on pan. When it boils, add 1/4 cp water in pan to keep loaf from burning and turn heat down. Cook 1 hour. Put in some peeled and chopped (say, in half or thirds) carrots. Cook another hour.

2014 Update--she says she doesn't know who gave me the recipe above but it was not her! 
Mom now says she adds
1 lb ground pork (or whatever)
another egg (if using 1 lb pork)
1/2 onion, chopped fine
milk to make mixture not so stiff

She also says to use on top
1 sm can tomato sauce or puree
