June King Aston


1 lbs. 80-85% lean ground beef
cup finely chopped onion
cup quick cooking oats or 1 slice of bread torn into small pieces plus cup cooking oats
1 large or extra-large egg
tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 tbs catsup
1 tbs milk
2 tbs ketchup
(Optional: 1 tsp Smoke flavor)

Place the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with your hands.

Form meat into one 9-inch long loaf, Packing it together well with your hands to avoid air pockets. Place in shallow baking dish. (9x13-inch dish works well).

Spread 2 tbs of catsup over the top of the loaf. Pour water in the dish around the meatloaf, to inch deep. Place dish on a rack in the center of the oven, and then turn oven on. Set the temperature at 325 if the dish is glass, and 350 if the dish is metal.

Bake for 2 hours uncovered. The outside of the loaf will be dark brown.

After baking, remove from dish to a platter. The meatloaf will be easier to slice if you let it cool slightly before slicing. A sharp thin knife works best for slicing, as a thick knife tends to break up the meat. Slice into 10 or 12 pieces and serve with catsup or BBQ sauce on the top.
