Help Jen Make Meatloaf!

I have a recipe, but am open to new ideas....

Jen here. Tired. Just got in. Have been thinking about making a meatloaf to feed off of for the next few days. The recipe that I plan on using, as dictated to me by Mom on the phone, by way of boosting my memory:

"Take a loaf pan and grease it. Take some chopped meat--at least 1 lb. but not more than 2; you won't eat it all before it goes bad. Mix in one egg; two if you use closer to 2 lb. of meat. Take 2 slices of cheap white bread and soak briefly in water, squeeze the water out, and work into the meat. Add dried onion flakes if you want, but not fresh as it will make it too wet. Add whatever seasoning you want (Mom uses a base of salt, pepper, and garlic powder; I will try the Northwest Woods seasoning I got at Penzy's). Put in the loaf pan and pour ketchup all over the top. Bake until it's done."

Now, this is the meatloaf that sustained me in sandwiches through elementary school. I am very much open to ideas, however. So, suggest away, and thanks for your input.

Oh, fucking "Unwrapped" is running agian on FoodTV. I never thought I'd ever MISS freaking Emeril on the midnight slot. OTOH anything is better than an hour of watching Rachel Ray rip off waitstaff in two different cities.
