Meat Loaf

This old standard was printed on the back of Quaker Oats packages for “generations” (at least 40 years).  Finally I decided that I should write it down because I was afraid that they might not put it on at some point.  Good thing.  I haven’t seen it on the boxes in the past several years.  My mother (Gram) originally made this recipe with milk instead of tomato juice because my brother was allergic to tomatoes.  I like this version the best.

Meat Loaf

1½ pounds ground beef

¾ cups quick oats

1 egg or ¼ cup egg substitute

¼ cup onion

2 teaspoons salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 cup tomato juice

Combine, turn into a standard loaf pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes at 350o.   Also if your family has been downsized, this amount will fit into three mini-loaf pans.  Cook one for about an hour and put the other two in the freezer for an “easy” meal in a hurry.
