1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Put the eggs, onion, garlic, Worchestershire sauce, parsley, salt, pepper, Parmesan and oats/Backing Blend in a food processor and process well for a minute or two until smooth.
3. Add the contents of the food processor to the meat in a 9x13 inch baking dish and mix all thoroughly together.
4. Make the sauce. Don't bother washing the food processor. Add the canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, sweetener, onion powder and garlic powder and process until smooth.
5. Pour half of the sauce into the baking dish and mix well with the meat. Smooth the meat into a flat loaf inside the dish. Pour the remaining tomato sauce on top, then cover with the mozzarella cheese. Bake for 50 minutes. The loaf releases a lot of fluid.
You can pour half of the fluid out once cooked (I would recommend just pouring it into a container and use it as kind of a gravy over the meat. Keep the rest of the fluid with the meatloaf as it helps keep it moist and flavorful.
NOTE: you can use ground turkey, chicken, etc or even another pound of hamburger, but the sausage makes it really flavorful and gives it a little kick. Be sure you spread the sausage around with the meat so it is well mixed in.
See note on using sausage. It's important that you use a 9x13 pan. If it is any smaller you will have a really big meatloaf and may not cook through completely.
