Time: 50 - 60 minutes
Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

1 Lb Ground beef
1 cup ketchup (divided)
1 egg
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
2 t garlic salt
1 t onion powder
3 t mustard
2 T sweet pickle relish
6 slices american cheese (divided)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F

Instructions:

Combine ground beef, 3/4 c ketchup, egg, bread crumbs, garlic salt and onion powder. mix with hands until just mixed thorough. (Over mixing causes a tough meatloaf).
Take 1/2 mixture and shape a rectangle on baking dish of choice (I use a slotted baking rack so the grease drains down).
Spread rest of ketchup, all of the mustard and relish over the rectangle.
Cover with three slices of american cheese.
Cover the rectangle with the remaining hamburger mix (I make thin patties and keep adding over the top) Make sure to seal the ketchup and cheese in.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
Place rest of cheese on top and allow to melt.
Slice and serve.

This serves about four. Depending on the size of your double boiler, the recipe can be doubled, or tripled.
My grandmother used this recipe to use up old bread, never served it with any toppings, and there were never any left-overs. She used whatever brown sugar she had - light or dark, or a combination, but never white sugar.
