READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Karen

This is my mom's recipe and we loved it so much because of the consistency oats gave to it rather than bread crumbs. Great leftover sandwiches.

This is a nice basic recipe for meatloaf that doesn't use bread or cracker crumbs. I'm so glad I found it because we loved it for dinner last night! It's very mild so we spiced it up a bit and added some garlic powder, basil and oregano. It held together wonderfully and made great sandwiches for lunch today! Thanks for a yummy meatloaf!
