Oat-based Meatloaf Recipe

14 Jan

We’re not sure where this recipe came from (maybe Dave’s Aunt Irene?), but there are plenty of variations on meatloaf with oatmeal online. Here’s the recipe Dave uses.


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 handfuls Quaker oats (use steel-cut oats for a nuttier flavor, though you might want to let them soak in water for a bit before adding them)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 onion
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Chop celery, carrots, and onion into chunks.
  3. Put cut veggies into a food processor and process until fine.
  4. Mix processed veggies with meat, egg, and uncooked oats in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Transfer to bread pan and cook in over at 400 for 45 minutes or until browned.

Aunt Irene recommends sauteeing the veggies before you add them to the meat, egg, and oats.
