We all have our favorite meatloaf recipe. I have several. This is the one that I like to keep frozen for that emergency meal or better yet, sliced, frozen and ready for an emergency meatloaf sandwich. When that craving for a meatloaf sandwich comes on you don't have time to make a meatloaf, especially in the middle of the night. Plop a slice in the micro on defrost for a minute or so and you are on your way to sandwich land. This is just a wonderful thing.
about 6 servings
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats, not instant
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl just until blended; place in a lightly greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Stir together ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; our evenly over meatloaf.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes, and remove from pan before slicing.
You will thank me every time you have a sandwich, especially around midnight.
