lean ground beef

5 stars with a few changes. I read a lot a reviews and then combined their ideas with one of the brown sugar meatloaf recipes. It is a total hit. My family loves it - truly best ever. and not the same old same old.
I used 1 lb of beef (less), 2 eggs (more for better consistency), 1c salsa, 3/4 c oatmeal, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, and chopped onion (dehydrated or fresh), plus a SMALL handful of brown sugar. sprinkle the bottom of the pan with brown sugar, add meatloaf and sprinkle top with brown sugar. bake at 350 for 1 hr. sounds odd but it's terrific. I hope your family agrees.
It was just ok for me.
This recipe was pretty basic but a good starting point. I added garlic to spice it up. Also if you only use the pan as a mold and actually bake it on a baking sheet it allows the meatloaf to cook in 3/4 the time. When you bake it this way you can put a sauce on the sides too for added flavor. My favorite sauce is to mix 3 parts kechup to 1 part steak sauce such as A1.
I made this meatloaf for my family and they absolutley loved it! My husband said it was the best ever. For a complete meal, I recommend serving it with the Ranch Potatoes.
Moist and tasty! A few easy substitutes: 1 small can tomato sauce in place of tomatoe juice. Add garlic powder or granulated garlic. Use 2 slices of crumbled bread in place of rolled oats. Make sure onions are chopped fine or they don't cook through. Top with ketchup before baking. A family favorite!
This recipe was great although I did make a few changes I used V-8 juice rather than tomato juice added about a tbsp of oregano 2 cloves of garlic as well I also added a couple shakes of seasoning salt. My super picky husband loved it and even said it was better than his moms and I NEVER have cooked anything better than his mom.
I made this meatloaf and my husband of 34 years said I finally did it right.
This is the best meatloaf I have ever made. My boyfriend hates meatloaf, but he loved this one and he wants me to make it again. I used ground turkey, 1 cup oats, Worcestershire sauce, tomato soup (I didn't have juice) and some spices (paprika, dried mustard, oregano). This was fast and easy and it's a versatile recipe that can be played with a lot. The texture of the loaf was amazing! I will never use breadcrumbs in my meatloaf again.
