Oatmeal Meatloaf


This recipe came from the back of the Quaker Oats box we bought in Ann Arbor. I adapted it a little by using a blender to make it acceptable to you kids -- no little lumps of egg goo or onions in the finished product!


1 1/2 pounds ground meat

1 cup tomato juice, sauce, or canned tomatoes in juice

3/4 cup dry oatmeal

1 egg

1 medium onion, cut in chunks


Salt, pepper, parsley to taste.


Use the blender to liquefy the onion, egg and tomato. Mix with meat and oatmeal. Add salt & ground pepper and chopped parsley. Pat into a loaf pan -- or into appropriate smaller dishes, for individual portions, and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, until nicely browned. Allow to stand 5 minutes out of the oven before serving.
