How to Make Meatloaf With Oatmeal

Every meatloaf recipe includes some sort of binder to hold the loaf together, and often, this ingredient is breadcrumbs. But if you have a gluten intolerance issue or just don’t have any breadcrumbs in the house, you can also use oatmeal. Try this recipe the next time you have a craving for a delicious, hearty dinner!
