Onion Crusted Meatloaf With Roasted Potatoes

     This is the classic All American one pot meat and potatoes meal.  The crispy, fried onions give it an extra crunch and the tomato soup makes the most delicious gravy.  If anything the moistness from the soup and the slow braising of the oven made it fall apart in spots but the overall texture was mouth watering and light. The little creamer potatoes hold up well in a dutch oven and they don't have to be peeled.  I made it in a 10 inch oven, baked it over 10 coals on the bottom and 20-22 on the lid.  Once I put it on the coals, I left it alone until it was done 45 minutes later.  At the last minute sprinkle on the remainder of the fried onions and let it bake for a few minutes more.  Another winner from  Campbell's Kitchen.
