Grandma's Meatloaf

MeatloafMeatloaf can be an inexpensive, tasty protein dish with the added bonus of oatmeal, cultured milk (buttermilk), vegies (onions and peppers) and eggs.  When you choose pasture-raised meats with organic onions, peppers and buttermilk in addition to free-range organic eggs you have a winning recipe.

Meatloaf Ingredients  

1/2 pound sausage

1 pound ground beef

1 cup oatmeal

2/3 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

1/2 cup onions

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup chopped peppers

Sauce Ingredients:

4 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

2 teaspoon dry mustard

Soak oatmeal in buttermilk about 8 hours.  Saute onion and pepper.  Mix meatloaf ingredients together in a large bowl (by hand works best).  In a separate bowl mix sauce ingredients together.  Pour 1/2 to 3/4 of the sauce into meatloaf and mix well.  Put meatloaf into 9x5 inch pan and pour remaining sauce on top.  Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
