Serves: 6
  • 1½ lbs ground beef
  • ¾ cup quick oatmeal
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup onion (finely diced (or grate it if your kids will freak out if they see a piece of onion))
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine ground beef, oatmeal, milk, egg, onion, salt and pepper in a medium sized mixing bowl.

  5. Mix ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard in a small bowl. Pour over meatloaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes
