1 lb. ground beef

1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped bell pepper

1 egg, lightly beaten
8 ounces canned diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 c. quick-cooking oats

1/3 c. ketchup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard


Mix all meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl. Place in a baking dish and form into a loaf.

Combine topping ingredients together in a small bowl and spread on top of loaf.

Bake at 375 for one hour.

I've also tried putting the meatloaf mixture into 1 inch bell pepper rings (any color will do). I cooked them in a skillet, turning occasionally, and added the topping mixture at the end.
