"You can't top a hearty helping of meat loaf with creamy mashed potatoes on the side,' writes Karen Laubman from Spruce Grove, Alberta. 'This tender, moist meat loaf with a hint of cheese is a big hit at our house. The addition of oats boosts its nutritional value.'"

A wonderful recipe, but why all the steps to prepare it? I put everything but the meat into a large bowl. Mix that up well and then add the meat. If your kids won't eat chunks of anything like onion. put the broth into the blender with whatever veggies you like (onion, peppers, celery, etc.), and blend. You get all the flavor and nutrition. There are only two of us, but I make the whole recipe, divide the finished meat loaf into 6 portions; put 5 of them into Tupperware square rounds and put them into the freezer. Then we can have meatloaf at the drop of a hat, whenever I can't think of whatever else to have for dinner. I love having something this good without having to cook.


I was a little skeptical during preparation because of the all the oatmeal, but it was delicious! I've tried 100's of meatloaves and are always just "okay", but, this one my husband even claimed to be better than his Mother's Famous Recipe!

I HATE meatloaf...I LOVED this meatloaf! I cut receipe in half (two eggs), used a 9 X 13" glass pan, lined bottom of pan with bread slices. FABULOUS!
