BEST Meatloaf, EVER!

If you don't already make your meatloaf with oatmeal, you should.  Its really good.  It gives a great texture to the meat!  Perfect!  This recipe will blow your socks off.  You have to do the sauce, that is what makes it.  Creamy and delicious and packed with flavor.

I know everyone makes claims about the "best" this and that.  But, honestly, this is really the best I have ever eaten.
I had extra sauce so I served it on the side.

Makes two 5 x 8 loaves, one for eating and one for freezing.  Certainly have it if you only want one.

3 pounds ground beef
2 cups diced peppers that have already been sauteed
4 eggs
1/2 cups soy sauce
2/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons garlic powder
sprinkle black pepper
2 cups rolled oats (plus)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
3  tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven 350. Mix all meatloaf ingredients together.  You want it to be able to form a shape- not too loose.  If you need to add more oatmeal, do so.  Place in loaf pan or mini tins. Mix all topping ingredients together and brush on top. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 160F.  One loaf pan is about 75-85 mins.
