Grandma Klingenberger's Meatloaf
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, minced
1 tbsp crushed garlic
about 2 cups of bread crumbs
1 can of condensed tomato soup
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine beef, onion, garlic, egg, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Add half of the tomato soup, reserve the other half in the fridge.
Add bread crumbs. Knead together with hands. If the mixture is too watery, add more bread crumbs.
Transfer mixture to one large loaf pan or two small ones.
Form the loaf(s) into log by pushing the mixture away from the sides of the pan(s) slightly, allowing room for the loaf to expand.
Cook for about an hour at 350 degrees F.
Remove from oven.
Top with remaining tomato soup.

This is the recipe my grandma always used to make meatloaf. When I still lived at my parents' house, my mom would make this meatloaf for me every year on my birthday.
