Gather Your Ingredients
To make this meatloaf, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 3 pounds of ground beef
- 2 cups of oatmeal (you can use fresh or purchased breadcrumbs if you prefer)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 eggs
- 3 teaspoons of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 can (8 ounces) of tomato sauce
Mix It Up
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, oatmeal, chopped onion, eggs, salt, pepper, and tomato sauce. Put on some rubber gloves (for hygiene purposes) and mix everything together until well combined. Don’t be afraid to get your hands in there and really work the ingredients together.
Shape the Meatloaf
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spritz the bottom of a baking pan with olive oil to prevent sticking. Now, it’s time to shape the meatloaf. Depending on how many people you’re serving, you can make two to three individual loaves. For a family of four, two larger loaves should be perfect.
Cook It Up
Place the meatloaves in the preheated oven and let them cook for about an hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. While the meatloaf is cooking, it will create a delicious gravy-like sauce that keeps it moist and juicy.
Serve and Enjoy
Once cooked, remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Slice it up and serve it with your favorite sides, like mashed potatoes or roasted veggies. The leftovers also make great sandwiches or can be frozen for future meals.
Now you have a meatloaf recipe without bread crumbs that is sure to impress your family and friends. It’s a simple and tasty twist on a classic dish that will have everyone asking for seconds. So why wait? Give it a try and enjoy a delicious homemade meatloaf tonight!
