DIRECTIONS

  • Empty soup mix packets into a small bowl and add 1/2 to 3/4 cup WARM water, stir with fork until well dissolved.
  • Set aside.
  • Place hamburger in large bowl.
  • Add eggs.
  • Work eggs into hamburger with your hands, squeezing handsful until eggs are well mixed with the hamburger.
  • The more you work the mixture, the better the meatloaf texture.
  • Add oatmeal and continue working the mixture until the oatmeal is mixed evenly throughout.
  • Pour the set aside soup mix over hamburger mixture, and again, work through with your hands.
  • Place mixture in baking dish of your choice, and form into a loaf.
  • Cover with lid or foil.
  • Bake at 350*, BASTING OFTEN, until done.
  • Bake covered for at least 1 hour.
  • Check if done by slicing down the middle, if there is no pink meat, it's done.
  • Note: If baking in a metal pan or roaster, grease the pan-- or the bottom of the meatloaf will, as Mom says,"get like shoe leather"!
