Had to laugh. So I left it there seeing if others had a comment.

I tend to chop onions, kind of, well, hearty like. ;)
Up River Meatloaf
3 lbs ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp. garlic
1 1/2 bread crumbs
1 Tbsp. parsley
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 tsp. basil
Have the ground beef thawed, but NOT cooked. Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl until thoroughly combined. You can put in two bread loaf pans or make a long loaf in a large baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.
Combine 3/4 cup tomato sauce, 1 tsp. mustard, 2 tbsp. sucanat, and 1 cup shredded cheese in a small bowl. Spread this mixture over the top of the almost done meatloaf, and allow to bake for 5-10 minutes.
