Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Turn the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove the aluminium foil, and bake for another 30 minutes until done. Cool slightly in the loaf tin before turning out. Slice the meatloaf into 1 cm-thick slices. Fry the slices in oil until golden brown. Prepare the sauce by mixing the remaining thick white onion soup powder with 250 ml (1 cup) water. Heat until thick, stirring continuously.
