Classic Meat Loaf

From Pat Barger’s Queen Anne CK, from the Quaker Oats web site. Recipe used to be on the Oatmeal box before they decided it wasn’t as healthy as their image.

Combine and mix well: 3 lb ground beef, 1 1/2 c oatmeal, 1 1/2 c chopped onion, 1 c catsup, 3 beaten eggs, 2 T worchestershire, 6 cloves minced garlic, 1 1/2 t salt and 3/4 t pepper.

Portion into 12 Texas size muffin cups, the meat will be mounded up–don’t let it touch the top of the pan.

For variety, push a large stuffed olive or a 1 inch cube of cheddar in the top of each serving.

Bake 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Cool in pans, remove and freeze on a sheet before placing into 12 ziploc bags. To serve, thaw in frig and reheat in oven or MW.
