  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Press into an ungreased 8-in. square baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink. Drain; let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
