I know, I know, meatloaf doesn’t sound like the tastiest of meals. There have been jokes about grandma and her meatloaf almost as long as there has been a grandma making meatloaf. My own grandmother, as much as I love her, lost her sense of taste years ago. She can appreciate good food, and can be a good cook. However if she forgets an ingredient, and accidentally put in salt instead of sugar she won’t taste the difference.
That is why I want to provide you with a simple, easy to make meatloaf that actually tastes good. This is pretty nutrient dense, and because it packs such a punch it can feed a huge group!
🥩Ground beef (2 lbs)
⚪️Mushrooms (4 oz)

🥣Quick oats (1 cup)
🥛Milk (1 cup)
🥣Brown gravy mix (2 packets/cups)
🥛Milk (2 cups)
▪️Mix all meat mixture ingredients together by hand in a large bowl (could easily add onion soup mix in here; I want to try that myself!).

▪️Make gravy according to packet instructions.
▪️Serve meatloaf topped with gravy. Yum!
The great thing about this recipe is that it can also be easily made to be gluten free. Just ensure that the oats you use are gluten free and the brown gravy mix is as well. Let us know if you try the recipe in the comments below! Then don’t forget to check out our other recipes as well.
