Place ground beef in and bowl.
Mix all together
It will not look pretty at first...lol
Form into a ball and place into pan
Form into a loaf shape
Pour potatoes and carrots (not drained) all around.
If you don't like the canned ,you can slice potatoes and carrots yourself, but add water to the pan.
I would estimate about 4 cups of water
Salt and pepper as you desire.
Cook in oven for about an hour at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and slice in half.
This will help the center cook faster
Add ketchup to the top
Place back in over for another hour.
This make a very large meat loaf.
It feed the 3 of us and then I have some that my Husband takes for lunch. I then have a large bowl left to eat from for a couple of days. The leftovers can be divided into small lunch size portions and froze for use at a later time.
