Category: Main Dishes
# of Servings: 4
Recipe Created By: Heidi Pasternak


2 lb ground beef
1 cup quick oats
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp basil
1/4 onion, finely chopped (optional)
1/2 cup boiling water
to taste salt and pepper
dash cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
dash allspice

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Form into a loaf and bake in any pan that will leave some drainage around the meat for the grease to accumulate so it can be drained off easily.

Bake at 375 °F for 45 minutes or until done.

Optional but delicious - mix up some orange juice, brown sugar, and ketchup and put under and over loaf before it goes into the oven. This was delicious!

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.

Hi, I can't wait to try this! It sounds delicious! One question. Do you bake it uncovered the entire 45 minutes?

Yes, you would bake it uncovered the entire time.
