"This is a recipe that I used to make all the time when DH and I had Kids at home and money was a big issue. It is off a recipe card from Betty Crocker back in 1971. It's from the "Best before payday dinner" card. I used it a lot and still make it once in a while because it is so good."

These were very easy and made a good lunch for us today. I used about 2/3 the amount of milk. I made them into 4 little meatloaves with sauce. Served with mashed potatoes.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I did find it too wet after I added the milk (I used coconut milk from the milk isle, not the canned style). I added a little extra oatmeal but it didn't really firm up, so I made it as a small meatloaf (I cut down the beef to 1/2 lb). I also was thinking the BBQ sauce might have too much onions and not enough sauce, but I was wrong. It was great.
