1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, pork, and/or turkey
2/3 c. dry oats or cooked brown rice
1/2 c. diced onion
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 eggs
2/3 c. ketchup

Mix all ingredients very well. Pack into a loaf pan, wrap and freeze. When ready to cook, thaw and bake at 350 for 1 hour.

For meatballs, brown in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes before freezing. Pack in sauce and freeze (in a tupperware, not a ziploc). When ready to eat, thaw during the day, then heat slowly on the stovetop.

Notes: A double batch of this recipe yielded two loaves, plus 18 good-sized meatballs.
