1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cups oatmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup tomato juice ( may use ketchup thinned with a little water)
pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients thoroghly. Put in baking dish. May top with 1/2 recipe of Homemade BBQ sauce. Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
I also use this recipe for meatballs. I have tried other recipes and this one always comes out on top.
