As in most recipes, large eggs are used, would like to have a converter with the recipe heading so that we can change the number of serving size, as recommended by another poster!! Thanks for posting this recipe will adapt it to one for my small family!!

Great taste, but I agree it would have been more helpful to give the ingredient list for a single loaf. Even after breaking down the amounts listed, one single loaf does NOT fit into a regular loaf pan. I made two loaves and ended up putting all the ingredients into a 9x13 baking pan---it still overflowed grease into the bottom of the oven. I had even drained off grease two times during the cooking process (by the way, 2 loaves take about an hour and a half!). I would definitely recommend using a 2-3 qt. casserole dish for one loaf. I would also use the petite diced canned tomatoes, or else chop up your canned tomatoes in your processor a bit. For those interested, here is the breakdown for one loaf: 3 to 3-1/3 lbs. ground beef (use 85% lean or higher if possible...less grease!). 1 cup plus 2-1/2 Tablespoons chopped onion; 2/3 cup diced green bell pepper; either just 3 eggs, or 3 eggs plus 4 tsp of liquid egg (like Eggbeaters); 1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp. salt; 1-1/2 tsp. pepper; 2 cups diced tomatoes (with liquid--or just use one 15 oz. can); 3/4 cup biscuit crumbs (I made up 5 Bisquick biscuits and used 2). Worth making!

A conversion to a recipe size that feeds something less than a small army would be more helpful.
