Recipe: Italian Meatloaf

1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 tablespoons dried garlic granules
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 egg
2 cups oatmeal
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup green can parmesan cheese
salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pan-spray a big piece of aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet (for sturdiness). Combine all ingredients. Shape into a loaf-shape and place on the sprayed foil. Drizzle a little oil over the top and rub by hand to coat. Wrap into a foil-pocket. Bake for 1 hour. Take out, uncover the meatloaf, change oven temperature to 375, and bake another 15 minutes. (Crust will form.)

Alternate: I like to combine 1/2 cup ketchup with a little garlic and onion powder , and spoon over the top. I like this crust even better!
