One of my family's favorite most requested comfort food, adapted from my mom's recipe and now she likes my version betterFor the Loaf:2 lbs ground meat (all beef or 1 lb 97% beef and 1 lb pork)1 C quick oatmeal2 eggs beaten8 oz can tomato sauce½ C finely chopped onion1 tsp salt¼ tsp barbecue spice (more or less as based upon your tastes)¼ tsp pepper.For Glaze:¼ C brown sugar¼ C ketchup1 T prepared yellow mustard
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine all "Loaf" ingredients, and mix well.
Place in a 8"x11" baking dish, shape into a loaf (one or two loaves, our family prefers one) it works best to make the loaf wide and long rather than tall, it cooks more evenly.
Bake for 1:15
Combine the glaze ingredients and spread over the top of the loaf(s)
Bake an additional 15 minutes. With a thermometer verify that the internal temperature is 165°
