Tasty Tuesday – Meat Loaf or Meat Balls

Welcome to this week’s Tasty Tuesday.  Last night’s dinner consisted of this meat loaf found in the “Tasty Traditions – Huber Family Favorites” cookbook.  I have reviewed a few different meat loaf recipes here on my blog, and I have to say this has to be one of the best we’ve tried.  It was super moist and delicious.


Here’s the recipe if you’d like to make either a meat loaf or meat balls as part of your dinner…

Meat Loaf or Meat Balls, Julianne H. Huber, page 91, “Tasty Traditions – Huber Family Favorites”

1 1/2 lb. ground beef

1 c. uncooked oatmeal

2 eggs

1 c. milk

1/4 c. ketchup

1 3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 1/2 tsp. mustard

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Mix all ingredients and shape into a loaf or balls.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or more.  (I do another portion of ketchup, salt, pepper, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.  Add 1 cup water; pour over meat balls.)  Squirt ketchup over loaf 10 minutes before done.

The only item I changed was I used ground turkey instead of beef.  And using the non-stick aluminum foil in the dish makes clean up a breeze.  No scrubbing with a SOS pad to get the dish clean.

Next week’s recipe will be for the yummy cranberry orange bread that accompanied the meat loaf.

Have a great last day of April.  Hard to believe that May starts tomorrow.

  1. Sounds good. I am a failure at meatballs….not sure why but they never come out right. Will try this recipe and maybe it will be the charm. I was confused by the “other portion” was that a separate meatloaf?


  2. Sounds good. The other day I made meat loaf meat balls and put them in a dish with potatoes and cheese, yum.
    Blessings, Tina
