      1/2  c             evaporated milk
      1/2  c             ketchup
    1 1/2  lb            ground beef

 and ketchup. Continue cooking about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow
 mixture to cool. In a baking pan, mix ground beef and pork. Add eggs, cooked
 vegetable mixture and bread crumbs. Mix by hand until thoroughly combined.
 In the center of the pan, shape mixture into loaf. Bake uncovered at 350
 for 25 minutes. Raise heat to 400  and continue cooking 35 minutes longer.
