This is one of my very favorite recipes. I’ve probably made it 1000 times over the years. My mom found it on the lid of a Quaker oats canister. It’s healthy, if you use lean ground beef. It is incredible left-over. It also freezes really well so you can make it on Sunday and pop it in the freezer for Thursday night. Just thaw completely before baking.


  • 1 C tomato juice
  • 3/4 C oats
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • Ketchup (optional)

Mix all ingredients (try not to overmix). Put in a loaf plan (I always use pyrex) and bake at 350 for one hour. If you like your meatloaf with “sauce,” squirt some ketchup on the top for the last 20-30 minutes of baking. My hubs likes his served with more ketchup on the side.
