  • 2 lb. hamburger
  • 1 c. tomato juice
  • 3/4 c. quick oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 3/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. oregano


  • 1/2 c. ketchup
  • 1 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. dried onion flakes


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Mix together oats, juice, eggs, and seasonings.
  • Add burger and mix until combined.
  • Place into pan and shape into a loaf.
  • Cover and bake for one hour.
  • Pour the glaze over the top and bake for an additional 15 minutes, uncovered.
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest for about 10 - 15 minutes before cutting it into slices.


You can use 2 lb. of hamburger (I like to use lean burger). Or use 1 lb. beef and 1 lb. venison or turkey burger.
You can substitute the seasoned salt for a tsp. of regular salt if you prefer.
I bake this recipe in a loaf pan, it is pretty full and sometimes juices run over the edge. I always set my loaf pan inside a cake pan, to catch any spills.
This meatloaf is very moist, and if you cut into it without letting it rest first, it may crumble.
