1/4 lb. mushrooms, chopped
2 T. butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
2 T. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup crushed crackers
2 eggs, beaten

Pastry for 2-crust pie

Saute onion and mushrooms in butter. Combine ground beef with mushrooms, onions, cheese, seasonings, cracker crumbs and 2 beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly, then shape into a log about 12 inches long. Roll out pastry large enough to envelop meat loaf. Save trimmings for cutouts. Wrap meat loaf in pastry, sealing the edges well.

Place on baking sheet and decorate the top with pastry cutouts. Combine 1 beaten egg with milk and brush the pastry.

Bake at 375 degrees about 50-60 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.
