Sorry, but we didn't care for this. I did like that it was very easy and came together quickly with items that I usually have in my pantry. It's a great base recipe, but it definitely needs some seasonings as it was quite bland - in the very least, some salt and pepper. Garlic would also add a nice touch. Thankfully I had made some gravy, so it added some flavor to the dish. The oatmeal flavor was quite prominent (not in a good way), so I would suggest cutting it back to 3/4 cup. For one pound of meat, 1.5 cups of oats is a lot, but I wanted to follow the recipe as written. This could be a four to five star recipe with some tweaks. It's very moist! Thanks for the recipe!

My husband says this is the best meatloaf I've ever made. It really does taste great the second day too. I had a slice for lunch the next day in a salad with green leaf lettuce, shredded carrots, diced tomato, and thousand island dressing. It was delicious. And so easy! I used quick cooking oats and egg beaters. The mixture was very watery, but the oatmeal soaked it all up in the baking process.

I give this 4 stars because it's a nice, EASY base recipe. I never make meatloaf but wanted a new ground beef recipe, so with a few tweaks, I think this came out pretty good! I reduced the oats to 3/4 cup like other reviewers said, and I omitted the French onion soup mix (to reduce the sodium content, and well, because I don't own that!). Then I added several dashes of pepper, garlic salt, and garlic, and sprinkled in a few teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce. The first time I made this, I added cayenne pepper for some spice, but it turned out way too spicy, so I left it out the second time. Also, the first time I baked it for the 1 hour, and it came out WAY dry (not sure if it was my oven or the fact I used a dark pan). I baked for 45 minutes instead this time around, and it was perfect! Like I said, good, easy base recipe!
