3 cloves of Garlic - diced

Combine all ingredients except Ketchup, mix well. Shape into an oval shape. Place into small roaster pan. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the roaster pan. Add Ketchup to top of loaf and spread around evenly. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 to 2 hours. Depending on how big your loaf is! About 35 minutes before it's done add potatoes and carrots around the loaf. Adding more water as needed!
