Quaker Oats' Prize-Winning Meatloaf
The phrase "Ma! The meatloaf!" will be thrown around in all seriousness in your household after you make this unlikely dinner hero.
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.
- 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
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.
