WHEAT LOAF

1 cup cracked wheat
1 can (14 ounces) low sodium beef broth
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup quick oats
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons dried green pepper
2 tablespoons dried onion
1/4 cup ketchup

Combine all but the ketchup. Mix well and pour into an 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch glass loaf pan. Bake 1 hour at 350o. Remove from oven and let sit 15 minutes. To remove the wheat loaf from the pan, use a knife or metal spatula to loosen the sides of the loaf. Gently insert the spatula under the loaf from each end of the pan to loosen the bottom. Place a platter upside down over the pan and turn the platter and loaf pan upside down to let the wheat loaf gently drop onto the platter. Wheat loaf may also be cut in half and lifted out of the pan. Spoon ketchup over the top of the loaf and spread to the edges. Slice into 6 or 8 slices. Serves 6.
