Directions

Print
  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix ground beef, quick oats, onion, milk, eggs, 1/4 cup ketchup, parsley, garlic, salt, basil, and black pepper together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined; pat the mixture into a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake meatloaf in the preheated oven until firm and no longer pink inside, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat loaf should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. Remove from oven, spread 2 tablespoons ketchup over loaf, and top with Cheddar cheese slices; return to oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you wish to freeze, bake as directed for one hour, remove from oven and cool. Refrigerate until well chilled, wrap, label and freeze. To reheat: unwrap meat loaf and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Top with ketchup and cheese and bake additional 5 minutes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I searched a bunch of recipes and used this as my base to add on. I omitted the oats as my hubby is on a no carb diet. It makes it very juicy, so be prepared. I added a tsp of Italian seasoning ...

Sounds just like the recipe that I got from my mother. If you like to freeze stuff for easy cooking later- make this recipe into patties and freeze individually and then cook on grill or microw...

This is my recipe except I use 1# ground beef and 1# ground pork. Love the oats.

Great basic recipe. I had no milk so I used sour cream instead. Tomato sauce instead of ketchup, and it turned out very good. Next time with a grated carrot and chopped green pepper, maybe potat...

This is a great meatloaf recipe just as it is. But my husband loves bacon cooked on top of the meatloaf. In the first cooking (1 hr 5 min) take 3-4 slices of bacon and lay them vertically on t...
