Mix all ingredients quickly and shape into loaf pan. Cook for 45 minutes in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees.
Pour 1/2 can of tomato sauce over top of meatloaf and cook for another 15 minutes.
Let stand for 1/2 hour. Cut and serve. YUM!
Waste not, want not: We eat meatloaf sandwiches for lunch the next day on hoagie buns with lots of ketsup.

Mix all ingredients except (EVOO) while potatoes are very cold. Fry on medium heat until golden brown. Drain on paper plate before serving. YUM!
