  • 1 pound ground beef, 80/20
  • 1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats (regular or gluten free oats)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato soup, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350F, rack in the middle. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray. In a large bowl add the oats and milk and gently mix. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the oats to soak in the milk.
  2. After 15 minutes strain out the milk into a separate container but do not discard. *If there is no milk left, it’s OK. Some brands of oats suck up all the milk while others do not.
  3. In the bowl the oats are in, add the ground beef, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, steak seasoning, garlic, onions, ketchup, and 3 tablespoon of tomato soup.
  4. Just combine but try not to overwork it as it will get tough. If the mixture is too wet, add in 1-2 more tablespoon of oats (don’t worry if they aren’t soaked). If too dry, add in the milk 1-2 tablespoon at a time. If you have no milk left as your oats sucked it all up just add more milk or water. You want the mixture to be pretty moist but firm enough to hold a shape.
  5. In the bowl gently press together.
  6. Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and using your hands, form a loaf that is about 12 inches long, 6 inches wide, and about 2 1/2 inches tall. The loaf should be smooth and have rounded edges. This will help the loaf stay together when serving.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, remove from the oven, and spread the remaining tomato soup on top of the meatloaf.
  8. Continue baking for another 30 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
