3 # hamburger
1 large onion, diced
3/4 c. oatmeal
2 T. bbq sauce
2 T. milk
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
Saute onion in small amount of butter or spray with cooking spray. Cool. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and divide to make 2 separate meat loaves. I use 9" round cake pans to form round meat loaves. Preheat oven to 350* and bake 1 1/2 hrs total time. After 1 1/4 hrs add enough of the special sauce to cover top. Heat the extra sauce in a pan or microwave to melt brown sugar. Serve extra sauce in a bowl.
Special sauce for top:
2 c. ketchup
1 long squirt of yellow mustard
brown sugar (enough so it stops tasting like ketchup)
Serve this comfort meal with mashed potatoes and green beans or garden salad.
In general, I put the second loaf in the freezer for a couple weeks done the road. I freeze the extra sauce too.
Extra note: You can shape this however you'd like. Individual hamburger size is fun and done on the broiler pan. Only takes 20-30 minutes to bake and easy to serve.
