1-1/2 lb lean ground meat
1/2 lb ground pork
1 large onion, minced
1 cup finely chopped celery, including leaves
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
4 slices bread
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 egg beaten
garlic salt
1 can tomato soup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 can water

Mix meats, onion, celery, parsley. In a small pan warm milk to hot but not boiling, add sliced bread and soak in milk. Squeeze excess moisture from bread, crumble and add to meat mixture. Add beaten egg, garlic salt and pepper to taste. Add Parmesan cheese to meat mixture and mix thoroughly and form into a loaf shape. Place in a 9 x 13 baking dish and cover with tomato soup which has been mixed with water and soy sauce. (If you like a lot of gravy on your meat loaf, double the tomato soup, water, and soy sauce) Bake at 350 for about 1-1/2 hour.
