"Years ago I wanted to try something different in my meatloaf and decided to add the rice. My family and I loved it, and have been eating it ever since. I have several that I make, but this one is one of my favorites! You can cut this with a knife after sitting for a few minutes, but because it's not a super firm meatloaf, I usually just scoop it out with a large serving spoon. Who says meatloaf has to be sliced anyway? I would not suggest deviating from the recipe if you want it to come out like mine :) Also, I would only use white rice in this recipe to make sure it cooks enough within the cooking time posted. "

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put beef and onions together in a large bowl. Mix well.
Add bread crumbs, eggs, and milk, and mix well.
Add rice and water, and mix well. (It will be soupy. It won't be like that when it's done).
Add 1/2 cups ketchup, and 1/2 cups tomato sauce, salt and pepper, and mix well. I use my hands to mix it together. It doesn't look so good before being cooked, but it is when it is cooked!
Put mixture in a 9x11 inch casserole dish, shaping into a loaf.
In a bowl, mix the remaining ketchup and tomato sauce together. Pour over top of meatloaf.
Bake in 350 degree oven, for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle.
Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
