Meatloaf (OTC Bread Crumbs and Mom)

This is the most basic meatloaf, ever. Beef, bread crumbs and egg, with something to bind them. There is no bacon on top, no ketchup to serve as a glaze. The only vegetable is a small onion, and the most interesting seasoning is celery seed. I used to not think very much of meatloaf, so when my future spouse invited me over to eat meatloaf with her family, I feigned interest and thought about being a good dinner guest. To my utter amazement, I could hardly stop eating this stuff! It really is funny – I was bored with meatloaves that were more complicated and had more ingredients, which by all rights ought to have been more interesting than I found them. 

1 ½ pounds ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 small onion, chopped
½ cup milk
salt, pepper, and celery seed, to taste

Bake at 350° for about 1 ¼ hours (or make into 24 meatballs and bake for about 15 min.)
