Mom’s Oatmeal Meatloaf

15 Dec

Growing up meatloaf was probably my favorite meal to help make, it was probably due to the fact that I got to use my hands to mix all the ingredients. Here is the meatloaf that I grew up on, of course mom never measured so these are estimates.

I have reduced this to feed 2, just multiply to feed more.

3/4lb ground beef
3/8 c. rolled oats (plain oatmeal)
1/4 c. ketchup
1 egg
1/2 t. worcestershire sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1/4t. salt
dash of pepper

Just add all in a large mixing bowl and mix by hand. You can also toss in diced onions and green peppers for some added flavor. I cook mine in muffin mans for perfectly sized portions, this makes about 6 meatloaf muffins.

Mix a quick BBQ sauce or use bottled BBQ sauce or plain ketchup and coat the top every 5-10 minutes while cooking

Cook mini meatloafs at 350 for 35 minutes, full size loafs will take 60-70 minutes.

You can top with mashed potatoes to make the muffins into cup cakes or serve as is.
