Old-Fashioned Quaker Oats Meatloaf

Quaker Oats was formed in 1877, and its name was registered as the first trademark ever for a breakfast cereal. The company put its first recipe—for oatmeal bread—on the box in 1891. This marked another first because no brand had ever put a recipe on its box before. Today, many food companies include recipes on their packaging and, like this recipe, there are some great dishes to be found on the box.
