Mom’s Meatloaf

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 3 strips of bacon


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the bacon.  Mix until well blended.  Dump the mixture into a bread pan.  Form into a loaf, tucking down the sides and smoothing the top of the mixture.

Place the bacon on top of the loaf, followed by some extra BBQ sauce.

Bake for 1 hour and serve hot.

Additional Tips:

  • Serve with squash (find recipe here!) and baked potatoes (find recipe here!)  All three dishes cook at the same temperature for the same amount of time.  The result?  A well-rounded meal with minimal effort!
  • Feel free to mix and match ingredients with whatever you have in the pantry.  No bacon?  Sad, but manageable.  No mushrooms?  No problem!  It’s pretty hard to mess this one up.
  • I usually mix all of the ingredients up by hand.  It’s feels really gross, but I have yet to find a better way to expertly blend them all.
