Easy Meatloaf Mixes

One meatloaf mix recipe can simplify your meals for the entire week.

Multipurpose Meatloaf Mix

Imagine having several meals already prepared -- and spending less than an hour preparing them!

That's exactly what you can do with the following recipe.
Simply double or triple the ingredients, then separate into
several meals.

Here are some of the scrumptious meals you can create in no
time, using the meatloaf recipe below.

* Chili
* Tacos
* Meatloaf
* Meatball sandwich
* Spaghetti and meatballs in red sauce
* Cabbage rolls (just add a bit of quick-cook rice)
* Swedish meatballs in cream sauce
* Hamburger patties with brown gravy
* Meatballs simmered in crockpot with BBQ sauce/onions

And here's the recipe that will make your life *so* much

Multipurpose Meatloaf Mix

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
2 lbs. ground beef or chuck
1/2 cup minced or chopped onion

Mix above ingredients in large mixing bowl. Can be
microwaved or cooked in oven (see below.)

Meatloaf Topping:

Make a simple brown gravy mix from a packet.
Use BBQ Sauce with a touch of brown sugar and brown mustard.

Microwave Directions:

Microwave meatloaf on high (wrap lightly with waxed paper)
approx. 15 minutes. Drain, then top with your choice of
sauce or gravy. Microwave another 3-5 minutes.

Oven Directions:

Cover meatloaf with foil and bake approx. 50-60 minutes.
Drain, then top with your choice of sauce or gravy. Bake
another 5-10 minutes.

** Will feed approx. 5 people
** You can use low-fat versions of items, too.


A triple batch will make the following:

1 medium-sized meatloaf
2 meatball meals (Swedish, Red Sauce)

Note: While meatloaf is cooking, I make meatballs with my
handy-dandy large ice-cream scoop (the one with the small,
moving part that escorts the meat out of the scoop for you.)

It will save your wrist and is so much quicker.

Cook meatballs until just done. Store in an airtight
container in fridge. If freezing, be sure to cool them
first. They can be frozen before or after cooking.
