Scariest Vintage Recipes #4: Banana Meatloaf

This is from January 22, 2010, and it is a recipe from a pamphlet cookbook on bananas given to me by Rosemary Harris, the terrific mystery writer.  Do you think the cow here would be so happy if it new it was about to be Banana Meat Loaf?

1 pound ground raw beef (mmmm, mmmm)

1 tablespoon ground onion

1 tablespoon salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 cup soft bread crumbs

3/4 cup mashed bananas

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

Mix together meat, onion, salt, pepper and crumbs. Combine bananas and mustard. Add to meat mixture and mix well. Form mixture into a loaf and place into a well-greased baking pan (8.5x4.5x3) Bake in 350F oven for 1 hour.

Or you can bake the bananas and serve them separately. It suggests plating them around the meat loaf. Help.
