To conclude our celebration of Nationl Oatmeal Month, I’m including one of my favorite recipes.
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 can condensed French onion soup, undiluted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
ketchup or barbecue sauce
Combine all ingredients in a bowl; pack into a meatloaf pan or large (9×5×3-inch) loaf pan. Bake at 350° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Spread top with a little barbecue sauce or ketchup about 5 or 10 minutes before done.Let rest a few minutes before slicing.
