Outside my door ... Another cool, grey drab day. We may get some sun this afternoon but we are expected to get thunderstorms tonight.
1 pound of ground beef
1-1/2 tablespoons dried, minced onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 cup oatmeal (quick)
1 small can vegetable juice (5.5 oz)
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Transfer meat mixture into your ungreased 9 x 3-inch loaf pan. (For a lower-fat version, try a meatloaf pan that includes a liner with holes to allow the grease to drain out of the main pan.) Shape slightly to ensure the meat sits evenly in the pan. Stir sauce and spread evenly over the top of the meat mixture.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes until the sides of the meatloaf are browned and slightly pulled away from the edges of the pan. Drain the meatloaf and/or transfer to a platter. Let cool slightly. Slice, serve and enjoy!
