Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

My "Quaker Oats" Meat Loaf

I usually double the following recipe:

1 and 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 of 10.5 oz. size vegetable (ABC) soup
1/2 cup milk

(I usually don't add salt because it seems there is enough in the can of soup.)

Lightly, but thoroughly, mix the above ingredients together, pack lightly into a greased/sprayed loaf pan OR flatten out in a sprayed rectangular glass baking dish (double recipe needs 9x13" pan/dish).  Spreading Ketchup on top of meat is optional. 
I like to make a 'trench' between the edges of the meat and the dish so there's a place to collect any accumulating fat.

Bake loaf pan at 350-degrees for about 1 hour; or bake flat pan/dish for 40-45 minutes or until dark/rich brown.  Since ovens vary, check before the time is up.
