Those Who Have Died
by Suicide






A-1 sauce
1/2 sm. onion, minced or chopped
shredded cheese (optional)

2 lbs. hamburger, or deer meat ( or
combination), ground
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg
Italian bread crumbs

In a large mixing bowl put in meat and egg, salt and pepper, three or four good squeezes of ketchup, a shake or two of A1, and cover the top of the mixture with bread crumbs. Making sure to enjoy it, insert hands and mix well, really dig your hands in and squeeze everything together until it stays together when you roll it in a ball in your hands. Put into a 11 x 9 baking pan, glass or metal, form into the shape of a loaf of bread, being careful not to make it too thick. Should stand about 2-3 inches tall and about 10-12 inches long. Salt and pepper again, take the ketchup and make a zipper design on the top of the meat loaf. Then with the A-1 do the same right beside the ketchup. You could also add bacon bits in the mix or make it like a jelly roll and put shredded cheese between the two layers. Put in oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes at 350 until no red shows when cut with a knife in the thickest part of the loaf.

Note: Joey enjoyed this with macaroni and cheese, peas, french fries or mashed potatoes. Have not made it since he died.

Know that their plans has passed, except for how it lives in your memory.
