Meatloaf—nothing special-just yummy and easy
This is one of my favorite meals because it is simple and easy. Just pop the meatloaf into the oven along with potatoes, and in an hour, dinner is ready! And in the meantime, you have a load of laundry folded, helped someone with a school project, or you have the living room cleaned. Add a simple salad or some cut fruit, and everyone is happy.
1 pound hamburger (the leaner, the better)
½ cup quick cooking oatmeal
2 TBL prepared mustard (like you put on hotdogs)
1 cup tomato sauce or diced tomatoes
½ cup finely diced onions
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Mix everything together and bake in a loaf pan at 350 degrees for an hour.
This recipe doubles if you need more than 6 generous servings. If you double the recipe, I would recommend dividing the meatloaf between two loaf pans. Leftover meatloaf makes a yummy sandwich for your lunch the next day.
