Celine’s Meatloaf

If you’re looking for a fancy, gourmet meatloaf, you’ll need to keep on a-googling.  This is the meatloaf my mom made back in the day.  The kind with just one kind of meat.  The kind with lots of onions.  The kind with a stripe of catsup baked right in.  The kind served with catsup (not pan sauce).  The kind that’s uber-super-extra yummy cold the next day as a sandwich.  Still with me?  May I present to you the meatloaf that is comfort food to me:

If you always have ground beef and onions in the house, you probably have the rest.

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 3-4 handfuls old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • catsup

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place all ingredients except catsup in a bowl.

Remove any bling you wear on your fingers and mix using your hands just until combined.  Move the mixture to a loaf pan, pressing to shape your loaf.  Using the pinky-finger side of your hand, form a little furrow lengthwise down the center.  Fill the furrow with catsup.

Bake for 1 hour.  Remove from pan and place on a cutting board.

Cut into slices, serve with potatoes and a vegetable and there ya go.  Midwest comfort food from back in the day.  I turned fingerling potatoes into Mom’s salt potatoes.  The darker potatoes sparkle with the perfect amount of crystallized salt.  Nice combo with the meatloaf.

Just like Mom used to make.  Yummy.  ❤
