BBQ Oatmeal Meatloaf Recipe

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 3/4 pound mild sage-flavored breakfast sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 5 tablespoons dry onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
  • 1 cup rolled oats, or more if desired
  • 6 slices bacon, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix the ground beef, sausage, onion, carrots, onion soup mix, brown sugar, eggs, and barbeque sauce together in a large mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir in enough oats to make the mixture hold together — you can use up to 2 cups of oats. Divide the mixture in half, and spoon into 2 9×5-inch loaf pans. Place 3 strips of bacon the long way onto each loaf.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the meatloaf is no longer pink in the middle and the juices run clear, about 1 hour.
