3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 egg, beaten
¾ cup of milk
¼ teaspoon liquid smoke

Brown Sugar Glaze:
¾ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoons dry mustard
¼ cup vinegar

Combine loaf ingredients and mix well. Shape into an oval, flat loaf in a glass baking dish. With a large knife, make three wide slashes at an angle across the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven one hour. Spoon off drippings and baste all of the Brown Sugar Glaze over the loaf. Continue baking 30 minutes, basting often with the glaze.
