Sweet & Sour Meatloaf

My family loves meatloaf, but I needed a bit of a change.  A combination of sweet and sour sauce and meat.  A perfect change.  It was delicious!! The sauce is AMAZING!! Sorry this is the only picture I took.  We got too involved in eating it that it was all gone before I thought about taking more pictures.
Sweet & Sour Meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds hamburger
3/4 cup uncooked oats
1/2 cup minced onion
1  teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
1 (15 oz.) can of tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix hamburger, oats, onion, salt, pepper, egg and 1/2 can of the tomato sauce together.  Place in a loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes. 
Meanwhile in a small saucepan over medium heat combine the remaining tomato sauce, the sugars, vinegar and mustard.  Bring mixture to a boil and remove from heat.
After meatloaf has cooked for 45 minutes remove from oven and drain the grease.  Pour sauce over top of the meatloaf and return to the oven for 25 more minutes.   Let sit for about 5 minutes before slicing.
*You can replace the oats with breadcrumbs or corn flakes.  You could also shape it into a loaf and cook in a 9x13 casserole dish. Then the sauce could cover the sides a bit better.
Enjoy!
