  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried herb blend, such as fines herbes, or dried leaf sage or thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic, optional

  • Mushroom Gravy
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 12 to 16 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon Gravy Master, Kitchen Bouquet or other gravy browning sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Combine the ground beef, grated onion, egg, oats, milk, 1/4 cup of ketchup, Worcestershire, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, herbs, and garlic, if using. Blend well. Pack into a greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 1 1/2 hours.

Stir in flour until well blended. Add the beef stock and continue cooking, stirring, until thickened. Add the gravy browning sauce (Gravy Master, Kitchen Bouquet, etc.) and Worcestershire sauce. Continue simmering, uncovered, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed. Serve with meat loaf.
