Homestyle Meatloaf

Last night we had meatloaf on the menu, but I just didn't feel like making the old favourites...  So I went online and found a recipe I did not regret trying!  It is simply delicious!!  There are quite a few variations you could try with this flexible recipe, like adding finely chopped capsicum (bell pepper), chopped tomatoes, grated carrot... the options are endless!!

1/2 cup ketchup (tomato sauce)
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 (1 pound) (450g) package Bob Evans® Original Recipe Sausage Roll - this is sausage mince
1 pound (450g) lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion (I just used 1 medium onion)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup uncooked quick oats (some people substitue this with some instant rice for a gluten free version)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 180ºC (350ºF).
Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in small bowl; set aside.
Combine 1/3 cup ketchup mixture and remaining ingredients in large bowl; mix well.  Shape mixture into loaf in shallow baking dish.
Bake 1 hour and remove from oven.  Pour remaining mixture over loaf and bake an additional 10 minutes.
Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.  Serve hot.  Refrigerate leftovers.
