The Whistle Stop’s Meatloaf



  • 2-1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 1-1/2 C ketchup
  • 1/8 C Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1 Tbsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 C dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2-1/2 cups quick oatmeal
  • Sauce
  • 2 C ketchup
  • 1/2 Tbsp dry mustard
  • 1/3 C brown sugar
  • 1 C water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Diced Tomato Topping
  • 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 C sugar


Mix all ingredients by hand until well blended.
Let sit in refrigerator for an hour. (This step is not necessary, but the meatloaf holds together better when it sits for an hour or so.) Shape into 8-ounce sized, oval shapes and place them side by side in a greased baking pan. Pour sauce (recipe follows) evenly over the meat. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 45 minutes (or until done, temperature reading of 155 – 165 degrees). Serve cooked meatloaf topped with a heaping tablespoon of diced tomato topping (recipe follows). Tip: buy a 40-oz bottle of ketchup.

Whisk together the ingredients and pour over meatloaves.

Diced Tomato Topping
Simmer slowly for about 1/2 hour. You do not want it to get dry. just cook it down a little so the sugar permeates the tomatoes.
