4-5 pounds of chopped meat (preferably beef, and lean)
3/4 can of Italian Herb bread crumbs (if you cant get this, use regular bread crumbs and add extra amounts of the spices listed below
7 whole eggs
3 generous shakes of the following spices:
4 pinches of salt so about 1 teaspoon or more
2 shakes of black pepper
2 jars of marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the meat, eggs, and spices together. Add about 1/3 of a jar of marinara sauce, mix well, then add bread crumbs. Shape into a loaf, taking care to seal as many cracks as possible to prevent breaking. Gently pour marinara sauce on the entire outside of the loaf, taking care to cover all surface areas. Bake for approx 1 1/2 hrs or until a knife stuck into the middle comes out completely clean and extremely hot. When it is cut into, the meat should be completely cooked.
