Meat Loaf Recipe

Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :30:00

1 pound ground beef
1 1/2 cups oatmeal -- uncooked
1 onion -- chopped
2 mushrooms -- sliced
1 dash pepper -- ground
1 dash garlic powder
1 tablespoon parsley
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon basil
1 dash dill weed
1/4 cup catsup

This is another one of those hands on dishes. Add all ingredients except catsup to a bowl and then squish together with your bare hands. Don't use rubber gloves as you do not get the full effect with them. Also, rubber gloves can impart a strange taste to your loaf. Shape the loaf to your desire in a deep cake pan 9X13 or some similar dimension. This is a perfect dish for Valentine's Day, because it isn't too difficult to form a heart. It will be complete when you spread the catsup over the top as you would frosting on a cake.

Bake mixture at 375 F for about 1 1/2 hours.

Suggested Beer: Iron City Beer

Serving Ideas: Good with instant Mashed potatoes and corn

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not serve to anyone who pretends to hold a Masters degree in any of the liberal arts. They are likely to look down on you for the rest of your life. You will forever be "provincial". Or better yet do serve it to them and when your done tell them where you got the recipe.
