*1 lb. lean ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
3/4 cup diced onion
½ cup catsup
1 Tbsp. worchestershire
2 cloves minced garlic
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 cup Quaker Oats
favorite BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix meats together in a large bowl using your hands. Add all other ingredients and continue blending until well mixed.
Form two loaves and place in large baking pan.
Twenty minutes before its done (it takes approximately 60 minutes), drain off any grease/liquid and generously coat the top of the meatloaf with the BBQ sauce.
Let sit 5 minutes prior to slicing.
* my freezer is loaded with ground venison thanks to my husband (the great white hunter), so just about anything that calls for ground beef, I substitute venision. Since the vension is so lean, any drippings in the pan are from the pork. By-the-way, this freezes great! So, we usually take one of the loaves and freeze it to enjoy at a later date.
