Quaker Oats' Prize-Winning Meatloaf
- 1 1/2 Pound 90 percent lean ground beef
- 1 Cup tomato juice or sauce
- 3/4 Cups Quaker Oats, quick or old-fashioned, uncooked
- 1 egg or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 1/4 Cup chopped onion
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
The phrase "Ma! The meatloaf!" will be thrown around in all seriousness in your household after you make this unlikely dinner hero. While we all know Quaker Oats has the best recipes for cookies and breakfast meals, it is hard to imagine the tasty grain in anything else. Well, feast your eyes on this Prize-Winning Meatloaf that is loaded with the good oats. This crowd-pleaser will have everyone in the family begging for seconds.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Press into an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour to medium doneness (a thermometer inserted in the center should read 160 degrees) or until not pink in the center and juices run clear. Let stand for 5 minutes and drain off any juices before slicing.
Make It Your Own: Make this dish a truly signature one by ditching the red meat and subbing in ground turkey. This lean meat retains seasonings well and stays extremely juicy to maximize flavor.
