Simple Meat Loaf

My meat loaf before going into the oven

After an hour in the oven. Yum!

I made a meat loaf yesterday. It turned out pretty good. I followed the recipe off a box of Lipton Onion soup mix. I think what made it so good was less meat (I didn't have the full 2 pounds) and 1/4 cup extra ketchup. I also make a 'trough' on the top of the loaf before cooking it and fill it with ketchup, as you can see.
Off the back of Lipton soup box:
1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix
2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 plain dry bread crumbs
2 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine all ingredients.
In 13x9-inch baking or roasting pan, shape into loaf.
Bake 1 hour or until done. Let stand 10 minutes.
