Savoury Oat Loaf

I just love this recipe, it's perfect for the whole family and great to freeze and pull out for lunches.

This is my Aunty Karen's recipe and it is a regular feature in our house - perfect for a lunch, picnic or snack. Do not be put off by the list of ingredients, which seems a very odd combination. I promise you won'tbe  disappointed. It tastes a bit like stuffing, yum!


  • 250g cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp Marmite or Vegemite
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 4 large or 5 medium eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 tsp dried sage
  • 2 tsp reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 160C. Grease and line a 21cm x 11cm loaf tin.

Place cottage cheese in a large mixing bowl. Stir through Marmite or Vegemite until it is evenly distributed.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Allow to cool, then slice and serve. Enjoy a slice or two with a large salad.

This can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
