Quaker Oats Meatloaf
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup oats, uncooked, or non-instant oatmeal
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, lean
- 1 onion, medium, chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, or 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1/2 cup parsley, chopped fresh, flat leaf if possible or 3 tablespoons dried parsley
- Salt and pepper
- Beat egg and add milk. Mix together. Pour over oatmeal and soak for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- After oats have been soaked add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Put into a loaf pan or form into a loaf and place on baking sheet.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes or until brown and crusty on the outside.
- This recipe can be cooked in the microwave, although I prefer it baked in the oven. Place in a glass or other microwave safe baking dish (non metal) and cook on high for 16 to 20 minutes. Rotate every 5 to 7 minutes if your microwave does not rotate. Let loaf rest for 5 minutes before serving.
- The top of the meatloaf can be covered with 1/2 cup tomato sauce or ketchup if desired for added flavor.
