- 3 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 quart applesauce
- 2 C rolled oats
- 2 duck eggs OR flax seed egg substitute*
- 3 tsp salt
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1-1/2 tsp chopped fresh sage
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. When combined, press into a loaf pan and spread another 1/2 quart of applesauce over the top. Bake at 375* for 90 minutes.
Easy to serve with baked potatoes (they go in the same oven, so are easy to cook) and a green salad.
*Powder 1 cup flax seeds in a blender or food processor. While appliance is running, drizzle in 3 cups water. The resulting mixture will be light and frothy, and can sometimes be used as egg replacer in recipes. It works in this one.
