This is comfort food at its best.  And by including vegetables, using lean ground beef, and using oats, it's quite nutritious also.  Feel free to use whole wheat bread crumbs in place of the oats.  Cheese could also be included in the mixture, but it would up the fat.  Shredded carrots, diced bell pepper, chopped spinach, or fresh garlic would also be great ways to sneak extra nutrition in.

-1 lb ground beef (I recommend 93/7)
-1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
-1/2 c oats
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1 onion, finely diced
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-2 tsp Italian seasoning
-1 egg

-2/3 c ketchup
-4 Tbsp brown sugar
-2 Tbsp yellow mustard

In medium bowl, combine meatloaf ingredients until well mixed.  Place in a baking dish and shape into a loaf.  Whisk together topping ingredients and spread over meatloaf.  Bake at 375 for 1 hour.
