Meatloaf is a staple in American cuisine. Although many Americans seem to really hate it, the rest of us love it.
This is the only recipe I've personally ever seen that you don't use a loaf pan.

serves 6-8

3 lbs ground beef
1 1/2 C chopped onions
(You could even use 1 bag of frozen chopped onions)
1 C fine cracker crumbs
2 large eggs
1 rounded T chili powder, or more
1 T salt
1/2 t pepper
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
fresh or dried parsley

Combine beef, onions, crumbs, eggs and seasonings in a mixing bowl. Blend thoroughly.
Work the mixture with your hands. Form into a roll.
Place on a greased baking pan.

Cover with canned tomatoes.

Bake in a preheated oven of 350° for 75-80 minutes. Baste several times with the pan juices. 
Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
For sauce, serve with ketchup or tomato sauce.
