This is a very large batch, so feel free to cut it down to a smaller amount. When I cook, I like to cook a lot so Austin has leftovers for lunch.
This is flavor-packed! I prefer to sauté the onions so they aren’t crunchy. It gives the meatloaf a different taste too.
1/2 onion, chopped and sautéed in a bit of oil until almost transparent
5 teaspoons McCormick Grill Mates (we like Montreal Steak, the one with Worcestershire is good too)
garlic powder, a few shakes
1/3 cup quick oatmeal
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
Mix everything together with your hands. Form 3-4 small loaves. Place on prepared baking rack (place a sheet of foil over a baking rack, place on a cookie sheet, take a knife and poke holes in the foil). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until done.
If fixing ahead of time, spread the mixture into a 7x11 pan and place in the refrigerator until needed (up to 24 hours). Cut the mixture in half (short side), then cut each in half again to make 4 loaves. Remove from pan and place on prepared backing rack.
