Just like mom's meatloaf with a nice tangy, saucey topping. Give it a try with some mashed potatoes or mac and cheese.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Finely chop onion. In a large bowl lightly beat egg. Add chuck, onion, oats, 1 cup tomato sauce, soup mix, parsley and pepper and lightly blend with hands until just combined. In a roasting pan form mixture into a roughly 9- by 5-inch loaf and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes.
  3. While meatloaf is baking, in a small saucepan whisk together water, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, and remaining cup tomato sauce and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Reduce heat and simmer so that sauce thickens and reduces.
  4. After meatloaf has baked 20 minutes, spoon enough sauce over meatloaf to coat it. Continue to bake meatloaf, spooning more after 45 minutes and then 1 hour and 10 minutes more, or until a thermometer inserted in center registers 160°F Let meatloaf stand in pan on a rack 10 minutes.
  5. Adjust time if cooking in muffin tins.
  6. Serve meatloaf with sauce on the side.

This was a great recipe! It has very healthy ingredients but very tasty. I loved the saucey toppping it gave it just the right amount of sweetness with tang.
