"Quick and easy to make. A family favorite. The ketchup and brown sugar give these loaves a tangy flavor." — Tonya Swope

shredded Cheddar cheese
quick cooking oats
packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
Very good and tasty. Instead of forming them into individual loaves as suggested in the recipe, I used a muffin pan that I sprayed with PAM. The cooking time was the same and it was easier, too.
make the meatloaf with seasoned bread crumbs. this taste like an oatmeal cookie with meat.
I wanted to try this recipe for several reasons - it has a ketchup/brown sugar topping like the recipe that my husband prefers and it was highly rated. I would never have thought of putting OATMEAL and CHEESE in meatloaf! It was SO good. The thing that absolutely made this recipe the best was the texture - and I guess that is attributed to the oatmeal and cheese! The only thing I did differently was put a dash of garlic powder in and use my Pampered Chef Mini-Loaf pan to do four loaves.
One suggestion for those who are finding it to be too "wet". Let the oatmeal/egg/milk mixture sit for a few minutes so the oatmeal can absorb some of the liquid before you combine with the meat.
YUM! This is going to be my permanent meatloaf recipe!
I wanted to try a new Meatloaf recipe other then my Mom's. I saw this recipe, and it was close to hers, but a little different (quick oats, sauce, no onion). So, I made it exactly as the recipe called for, BUT added one large chopped onion (meatloaf isn't meatloaf without onion).
I found a NEW recipe. This meatloaf recipe is BETTER then Moms. My kids were licking their plates. I can't get the taste out of my mouth. It was fantastic. I already sent the recipe to my sister in law, to feed to her finicky kids. I think they'll even like it. I don't think anyone who tries this would be disappointed.
My husband wanted meatloaf for dinner so I got online to see what I could find....THIS WAS AWESOME!! I used a muffin pan like others had suggested. I like the individual serving sizes except my husband ate 9 outta 12 meatloaf muffins!!! So much for lunch tomorrow....
I stuck pretty close to original recipe but added Ms Dash's 1/2 tsp onion medley and cut back to 1/2 tsp salt. Also was just under 1/2 cup of oats so I added some italian bread crumbs too. Put about 1/4 cup chopped onions and had to add Worcester sauce cuz I love it!
This really was easy to make and has me looking forward to the next time we can eat meatloaf! Thanks Tonya!!!
Very tasty. I added some chopped sauted onions for extra flavor and used fresh bread crumbs because I didn't have oats. I left the milk also. I did make 8 loavess, but I used 1 1/2 pounds of meat. I don't know that 1 pound would have been enough meat for 8 loaves otherwise. I felt they were the perfect size and ate one. My brother was here for dinner and ate 4 though, but he is a big guy and had just come from work.
I've finally found a meatloaf recipe I love just as much as my usual recipe! I'll be switching between the two! I did add some finely chopped onion, Worcestershire and garlic powder
Very clever recipe that was appealing to everyone! The kids liked having their own personal meatloaf and my dh even preferred it over the one giant lump of meatloaf. It looked so much prettier to serve on a plate too! I have to admit, I didn't have oats so I used regular saltine crackers and I didn't want the mustard in it so I left that out, but it was a fantastic recipe. I used a measuring scoop as a mold. A keeper!
