This classic meatloaf is an all-beef meatloaf with oatmeal, onion, and a little garlic. I love the ketchup topping, but a topping of barbecue sauce would be delicious as well.

Yield: Serves 6 to 8


  • 2 pounds ground beef, 85% to 90% lean
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup ketchup, plus more for topping
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme or sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic


Combine the ground beef, grated onion, egg, garlic, oatmeal, milk, 1/4 cup of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, sage or thyme, and garlic, if using. Pack into a greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove and carefully pour off any excess grease. Spread ketchup over the top of the meatloaf and return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes longer.
