Julie's Old Fashioned Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of the easiest dinners to make. Its something you can just whip right up and throw it in the oven or put it together before hand (even a few days before hand) and cook it later. I came up with this recipe several years ago, when my three oldest children were just little tikes...running me ragged. Its been a family favorite for many, many years, often getting requested for Sunday Dinner. This meatloaf is delish as well as simple.

Julie's Old Fashioned Meatloaf

2 lbs ground beef (ground turkey would work just as well)
2 c. old fashioned oats
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 t. season salt
1 1/2 t. onion powder
1 1/2 t. garlic powder
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. barbecue sauce

Mix all ingredient together, using your hands...this assures a thorough mixing. Place meat mixture in a large loaf pan, pat down. Top with barbecue sauce (as much or as little as you like).
Bake covered with tinfoil for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil and bake for 15 more minutes. Serve hot.


  1. This is currently sitting in my oven. Thanks for the idea Julie! I'll let you know how good it is. :)

  2. I wanted to make meatloaf tomorrow, so I decided to check your blog to see if you guys had a recipe. I clicked on beef and this was the first recipe! Woo hoo! We'll try it tomorrow. (BTW, this is Kristin not David.)
