I was looking for a recipe to use one pound of ground beef (because that is what I found) and I was in the mood for meatloaf. I found this one and decided to try it because I thought the oatmeal sounded interesting. We loved it! I jazzed it up with a more interesting glaze, but you can do whatever you want for that (I add 2 heaping tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tbsp lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp mustard powder to the 1/4 cup ketchup). The first time I made it my husband and I thought I chopped the onions too big so I have since chopped them smaller. Other than that it's a simple and good tasting meatloaf!

My recipie calls for just salt and pepper no other seasonings. Then I add a squirt of mustard, squirt of ketchup and 2 tablespoons A-1 sauce. I usually top it with a honey BBQ sauce. Delicious.

This is delicious. I have a husband that is gluten intolerant, so using the oatmeal is a plus for me.

I will make this meatloaf again. I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of the oatmeal but otherwise followed the recipe. I topped it with a glaze of equal amounts of ketchup and light brown sugar.

I only had 1/8 cup of ketchup so I used that with 1/8 cup hickory smoke BBQ sauce. I used 2/3 cup chopped onion and a little more oatmeal. I also used minced garlic instead and a little more salt. I baked them 35 min in a muffin tin. After they were done I put a little BBQ sauce on top!

Now that we are empty nesters, I have wanted a smaller meatloaf recipe for 2, and this is perfect! Instead of using ketchup, I used 1/4 of Kinder's BBQ sauce, which gave the meatloaf a little zip. Great flavor! I didn't have an onion, so I used 1 TBSP of dried minced onion. A little too moist and fell apart in a couple of spots, but maybe that was due to the change in onion. Will be making again!

The spices in this recipe made me curious to try it and I wasnt disappointed. My 10 yr old really enjoyed as well. Served w/ mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing:)

My husband like this a lot. However, I adjusted the spices to our taste. No chili powder, added 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire pepper, 1/4 tsp ground savory, and 1/4 tsp. oregano. Topped with my homemade chili sauce - a sweet & sour kind, not salsa. Great comfort food. will be making this again. Perfect sized recipe for a couple! (with leftovers).

I added 2 TBS. chopped green bell pepper to the meatloaf and used no topping as my family doesn't care for meatloaf topping. With chili powder and garlic the meatloaf was so flavorful that a topping wasn't needed. I will use this recipe again and again because I like a smaller meatloaf and my husband loves it.
