Meatloaf Footballs

This is a simple recipe. We use it all the time. Big hit with family and friends. Got the recipe from my Grandmother’s recipe stash.


  • 1 lb Hamburger
  • 1 Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Sweet Banana Pepper or Bell Pepper chopped
  • Salt/Pepper (user discretion) I use a tsp each
  • Quick Oats
  • Ketchup



Preheat oven @350

Beat Egg, add Salt/Pepper/Ketchup (about 3 TBS), mix well.
Add Onion/Hamburger/Pepper of choice and enough Oats to be able to form you meatloaf.
Form your Meatloaf into a Football shape (usually 4 inches long is big enough)
Place in baking pan and bake @ 350 for 30-40 minutes ( might place a small amount of water in bottom of pan)
Before the last 10 minutes, pull them out of the oven and make the lacing of a football across them. Put it back in for the final 10 minutes. You can also add cheese of your choice over the ketchup after bringing out of the oven & cooled a bit.

Great for NFL parties and for you child’s sports parties as well.
