From a cookbook my friend Tara in Vancouver sent me called "The Best of the Best and more"
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (I minced mine, because then Gaby doesn't notice it)
1/2 c. milk
1 egg, beaten
8 crushed soda crackers (I used about 1/4 c. plain bread crumbs)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 c. brown sugar
Combine ground beef, onion, milk, egg, crackers (or bread crumbs), salt and pepper and mix well. Place in a large loaf pan and make a groove down the center of the loaf. In a bowl, combine ketchup, water, mustard, and brown sugar. Pour over meat and bake at 350 for 1 hour; drain.
