Prize Winning Meatloaf

Prize Winning Meatloaf from Quaker Oats.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 Pounds 90% lean ground beef
  • 1 Cup tomato juice or tomato sauce
  • 3/4 Cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 egg or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 Cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Press into 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Bake 1 hour to medium doneness (160°F internal temperature). Meatloaf should not be pink in center and the juices should show no pink color. Let stand 5 minutes; drain off any juices before slicing.Serving Tips: Customize meatloaf by adding one of the following to meatloaf ingredients:
1) 1/2 cup frozen (thawed) or canned (drained) corn;
2) 1/2 cup chopped green or red bell pepper;
3) One 2-1/2-ounce jar sliced mushrooms, drained;
4) 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese; or
5) Two tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley or cilantro. Sprinkle top of baked meatloaf with 1 cup shredded cheese. Return to oven for 3 minutes to melt cheese. Spoon heated prepared spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, barbecue sauce or salsa over meatloaf before serving.

Personally, we use ketchup, in it AND on top…before baking; we like the baked on ketchup 😋 🥫
