As you can tell I wasn’t thinking – I got all my vegetables ready and realized I placed my meatloaf in the wrong casserole dish… I had no room for my veggies! 🙄 It’s okay I gently moved the meatloaf to my enamel baking pan ~ problem solved and plenty of room for my veggies!



This is my mom’s recipe and I feel it is one of the easiest and best tasting. The only thing I do different is I use 1 cup Tomato Juice mixed with 1 cup Open Pit Original Barbecue Sauce mixed in then some over the top of the meatloaf before I bake it. I LOVE adding potatoes, carrots, celery and onions around the meat making it an all in one pan type meal!

3 Lbs. Ground Beef
1 Tsp. Beef Base
1/2 Tsp. Pepper
1 Tsp. California Garlic Salt
2 Cups Tomato Juice (1 Cup Tomato Juice – 1 Cup Open Pit Original)
1 Medium Onion, diced
1-1/2 C. Oatmeal

Mix all of the above together –  Save about 1/2 cup tomato juice and pour over top of meat before baking.  Bake 350º for one hour or until veggies are done. If your meatloaf is thicker may take a little longer. Oh, so Good!
