There are many, many wonderful recipes, coming from a multitude of countries and cultures. However, folks, it just doesn’t get any better than this, my Grandmas Old Fashioned Yummy Meatloaf.

Grandmas Old Fashioned Yummy Meatloaf Recipe-

  • 1-½ lb. lean ground beef (less than 10% fat)
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats, uncooked (not quick-cook oats, regular rolled oats)
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • ½ cup ketchup, divided
  • 2 tbsp. fresh ground horseradish, divided
  • 2 tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tsp. French’s yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, divided
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes

  • 1½ Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  1. In a bowl combine ground beef with oats, onion, half the ketchup, ½ tbsp. horseradish, milk, eggs, parsley, thyme, half of the cumin, salt and pepper. Shape into loaf. Place on a lightly greased rack in a roasting pan; bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  2. Combine remaining ketchup and horseradish with brown sugar, mustard, and the remaining cumin. Spoon this mixture over the top of the meatloaf. Bake another 15 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
