Meatloaf with Pinhead Oatmeal Recipe

This Meatloaf with Oatmeal recipe calls for adding pinhead oats to a blend of beef and Italian Sausage herbs and spices. The flavor is brightened by Worcestershire Sauce, Hawkshead Black Garlic Ketchup and the pinhead oats provide good texture without being gummy – 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 firmer more interesting loaf.


How to Make Meatloaf with Oatmeal:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs.

3. Add to the eggs: Worcestershire Sauce, ketchup, herbs and spices, salt and pepper and mix well.

4. Stir in oatmeal and mix well.

5. Add meat and mix in with a potato masher to break up the ground beef.

6. Add onions and mix in. 

7. Put the mixture into a loaf pan and bake for about 30 minutes.

8. Take the temperature of the loaf. About 150 F - Top with marinara sauce and return to oven for about 15 minutes.

The meatloaf is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the loaf reads 160 degrees. Your loaf may gain a few more degrees after being removed from the oven as it rests in the pan.
