One of my favorite things that my grandmother used to make was her meatloaf. It was leaps and bounds better than any other meatloaf I have ever had, and still is. I’ve made a few adjustments to her original recipe in order to avoid heavily processed things, but it’s still almost the same. I hope that you enjoy it as much as my family does!!
- 2 lbs Ground Beef or Turkey (preferably grass-fed beef)
- 1 cup organic quick oats
- 1 medium onion- chopped
- 2 celery stalks- chopped
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 cup organic ketchup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 tbsp. vinegar (I use apple cider, but plain white vinegar works as well)
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 2 tbsp. yellow mustard
- 2 tbsp. Worcestershire
- 1 tsp. horseradish
Preheat oven to 325*. Begin by mixing the oats, onion, egg, celery, salt, and pepper.
Make the sauce. Add 1/2 the sauce (approximately 3/4 cup) and the meat to the oat mixture and mix thoroughly.
Grease a bread pan and form the meat mixture into a loaf. Bake at 325* for 45 minutes. Remove and top with remainder of the sauce. Bake for another 45 minutes at 325* or until a meat thermometer reads 160 (beef) or 165 (turkey).
