Moist, Easy Meat Loaf

Moist, Easy Meat Loaf


2 lbs. ground meat (I use a combination of veal, beef and pork)

1 package of onion soup mix

3/4 cup oatmeal (I use the quick 1 minute-cooking oats)

2 eggs, beaten lightly

1 cup tomato sauce (or tomato juice)

salt and pepper to taste


topping

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar


Mix all the meat loaf ingredients thoroughly together in a bowl. Press into a loaf pan that's been lined with foil. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours, and halfway through add the topping, by mixing together the ketchup and brown sugar in a bowl, then smearing over the top.


Let the meat loaf rest about 10 minutes after baking, for easier slicing.
