Meatloaf with Oatmeal Recipe
Meatloaf with Pinhead Oatmeal Recipe
This meatloaf recipe calls for adding pinhead oats to a blend of beef, pork and veal. The flavor is brightened by the addition of original Hawkshead Relish – a delicious Worcestershire Sauce-style condiment – and the pinhead oats provide a hearty and robust texture – a satisfying and really delicious combination.
Oatmeal and breadcrumbs have long been used in meatloaf as extenders and to keep the meat moist. Using breadcrumbs will yield a soft, tender texture, while the pinhead oats produce a more interesting loaf.
1 cup uncooked Oatmeal of Alford
2 tablespoon Hawkshead Relish (Worcestershire Sauce)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground veal
1/2 pound ground pork
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs; add oats, Hawkshead relish, onion, ketchup, salt and pepper and stir well.
3. In another bowl, mix the beef, pork and veal together. Add meat mixture to the oat mixture and gently knead until thoroughly blended.
4. Put the mixture into a loaf pan and bake until the meat shrinks from the sides of the pan, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 155 degrees. Remove loaf from oven, pour off excess fat and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
