Here's a savory variation on an old family favorite.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine the beef, oats, onion, egg, catsup, Worcestershire, salt and pepper, and 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Mix well, and pack into a lightly greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
- Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.
- Stir together the remaining 1/2 cup tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, brown sugar, prepared mustard and vinegar. Pour over meatloaf, and bake 45 to 50 minutes longer.
- NOTE: The best ground beef for meatloaf is neither the leanest nor the fattest. Since most supermarkets offer a choice these days, look for ground beef that is marked 80 to 85 percent lean.
