My mom made this version of meatloaf during my growing up years. I've been making it for the last 45 or so years. Mom got it off the side of the Quaker Oatmeal container but I call it.........
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup tomato juice (I use one of the little 5.5 fl oz cans that comes in a 6 pak)
3/4 cup Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned)
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup chopped onion
pinch of salt and pepper and a little garlic powder
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Press into a loaf pan. Drizzle catsup over the top of the meatloaf before baking 1 hour at 350* letting stand at least 5 minutes after that hour. Drain any grease and serve.
