Jessica's Meatloaf With Oatmeal

Total Time

Cook 1 hr

You can't tell this meatloaf uses oatmeal instead of bread crumbs, very yummy! Use either regular or quick oats.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix sauce ingredients, set aside until meatloaf is halfway cooked.
  3. Beat eggs; stir in milk, oats, sage, salt, onion and optional celery. Mix into ground beef. NOTE: Traditional meatloaf has double the salt; we like this recipe as is, but you may season to your own tastes by increasing salt or adding pepper.
  4. Place in 9" X 9" pan, leaving 1/2" empty border (makes it easy to remove any grease later).
  5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Cover with sauce and bake an additional 30 minutes (still uncovered) at 350 degrees.
  6. Immediately remove any grease standing in the border.

l wanted to try a new meatloaf recipe and wanted it to be gluten free, so l was excited to try this one. l doubled the recipe, followed it to the letter and was left with two pans of tasteless meatloaf that had to be drowned in ketchup to be edible. l'll be sticking to my old recipes l guess. l have no idea what went wrong.

Made this for dinner tonight and typically DH is not a meatloaf fan. He loved it. I used organic ground beef and for lack of a fresh onion, I added recipe-ready onion and tomatoes, old fashioned oats, I used all the celery, sage & added pepper, and none of the salt. I made the glaze sparingly with 1/2 the brown sugar and added pepper. We will be having this again. I baked it with parchment paper and there was very little grease in this dish. Thanks for the recipe, Laurenpie!

I used the celery and omitted the salt. I used quick oats. The taste is really good. My son ate it without adding more ketchup. He was so happy to eat meatloaf. Thanks laurenpie :) Made for cookbook tag game
