2 loaves day-old white bread, crusts removed

10 pounds ground beef

  3. Make bread crumbs by placing the bread in the work bowl of a food processor and processing until finely ground. Transfer crumbs to a large bowl. Add all ingredients, except ketchup, to the bowl; mix until just combined. Divide and shape the meat mixture into loaves in the prepared pans.
