Gotta Eat It Meatloaf

I have two versions for the meatloaf, both of which are loved at our house.

This is my mom's recipe and it's delicious! Total Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
You will need:
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup oats
  • 3 eggs slightly beaten (or 1 egg and 2 egg whites)
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • Ketchup

1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except ketchup. Use your hands to mix it together well.
2. Put mixture into a greased loaf pan.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Drain any grease. Spread ketchup on top and bake for 30 minutes more.

Option 2 is my Stuffed Meatloaf. I make this for my husband in individual loaf pans and he loves it! Total Time: 50-60 minutes.

You will need:
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, or slices of cheese

1.   Grease loaf pans.
2.   Combine ground beef and onions.
3.   Place a thin layer of ground beef mix on the bottom and sides of the pans. Leave
      an indent in the middle of the bottom meat layer.
4.   Place cheese in the middle.
5.   Add remaining ground beef on top and lightly squish/smooth ground beef together
      to seal cheese in.
6.   Bake at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes. About halfway through, drain any
7.   Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top and let melt before serving.
