Notes

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. 

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

 

 

 

Oat Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Oat Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
