Quaker Oats Classic Meatloaf
"This was phenomenal. I hate meatloaf usually, but I had seconds of this. My husband at half the loaf, and even my picky, almost two-year-old, loved it too, and even asked for seconds. I used ground turkey instead, only because that's what I had in my freezer. It took an hour to cook. I served it with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. My husband, who hates ground turkey, has asked me to make this a weekly staple (and continue to use the turkey!)."- SunnyFLErin

kelmillington 1 year agoGreat meatloaf. We added chopped onion and mushrooms to the meat before cooking. Also added a few mushrooms and chili sauce to the top during last few minutes of cooking.

Haileydickens 1 year agoI feel like the oats night throw the texture off. Did anybody feel like the oats didn't seem right in the meatloaf?

SunnyFLErin 1 year agoThis is fantastic. We eat it all the time. I use ground turkey and I think that's better than beef. Yummy!
KickAMom 1 year agoReally delicious! I made this last night for my husband and me and it took longer than expected to get our 3 month old daughter to bed so it sat on warm in the oven for a while after it was done. I was sure it was going to be dry, but it was still perfect! I made a glaze of ketchup, honey, and brown sugar for the top and put it on about 40 mins into cooking.

schmoe111 2 years agoGreat! Used panko bread crumbs rather than oats and sprinkled onion soup mix on top before baking. Delicious and family loved it.
pugsruletheworld 2 years agoLoved this recipe! I'm new at cooking and it was really easy! I used Italian bread crumbs instead of oats and it tasted great! I also left out the salt and pepper. My friend says it tastes better than her mom's!
Celinama 2 years agoSo easy yet so good!! I substituted the Worcestershire sauce with steak sauce, and changed the ketchup to seasoned tomato sauce(with basil), added some fresh basil leaves,it turned out super!! it is my favorite dish!
AliciaLockey 2 years agoThis was the easiest and best meatloaf I've ever made. Didn't have an egg, so used egg whites. Taste was amazing, but the loaf did stick together as much as I would like. Will be sure to use a whole egg next time. Thanks for sharing
