These sandwiches have been a hit with my family from the first time I served them years ago. They make a quick hearty meal along with soup or a salad. I like to make a large batch and freeze the leftovers. -Pauline Schrock, Sullivan, Illinois


  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 10 sandwich buns, split


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, milk, oats, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper until meat is no longer pink. Transfer to an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Combine the ketchup, water, vinegar and sugar; pour over meat mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Spoon about 1/2 cup into each bun.
