So it’s Meatloaf day! I found this recipe at my Mom and Dads house a week ago and decided to try it. Luke and I went crazy over it! I’ve always like Meatloaf but I was never really good at it, plus I wasn’t crazy about the sweet sauce on top. However since all the therapies I’ve had, my tastes have changed and I LOVE this! So I hope you try it and enjoy 🙂
Now I will say I did change a few things up from the original recipe, but doesn’t everyone kind of do that anyways? I added some Young Living products to it of course, and a few other goodies too.
Here are the ingredients:
1.5 lbs of Hamburger – we use all-natural, grassfed beef from a local farmer
3/4 Cup Quick Oats
1.5 t Salt
1.5 t. Garlic Pepper
1/4 C Onion, chopped fine
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 Can Tomato Sauce (or mix water with paste like I did)
1 Egg, beaten – we use free range from our friend at The Coyote Hill
3 T Coconut Sugar – Brown sugar works fine too
1/4 C Ketchup
2 drops Nutmeg Essential Oil
1 t. Dry Mustard
Couple shakes of JuvaSpice – I add this spice to about everything, it has great ingredients and isn’t too strong a taste.
Couple shakes of Turmeric – Cause we all need this anyways, great for inflammation! Again the taste isn’t too strong.
So this is how it goes! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Now combine the beef, oats, salt, pepper, onion, garlic, tomato sauce and beaten egg. I form that into a loaf pan or dish.
Then it’s sauce time! Combine coconut sugar, ketchup, nutmeg and mustard. Mix well and spread all over meatloaf.
Cook uncovered for 1 hour. I also throw a few potatoes into the oven when I put in the meatloaf, just check them around 30 minutes and turn them over or poke them. They are usually done right when the meatloaf is done.
Well, what do you think? The picture above is actually a double batch that I made, We had some for dinner and the rest was frozen for Lukes meals (though I steal them for myself sometimes too!).
If you make this please post pictures!
