A favorite every time! If you're not feeding a crowd, freeze one loaf (either before or after baking) for later use.
2-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2/3 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
2-1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Dash garlic salt
3 eggs, beaten
2-1/2 cups tomato puree
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together the beef, cheese, onion, green pepper, bread crumbs, salt, thyme, and garlic salt. Combine the eggs and tomato puree and blend into the meat mixture. Turn into two 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour.
