A Caucophony of Lifestyle

Easy Meatloaf

Last night, my boyfriend Justin decided to try out a recipe for easy meatloaf.  The making of said it reminded him of authentically Canadian recipes.  When Justin and I first started dating in high school, he was a vegetarian.  One day he came over to my dad’s house for dinner, and I accidentally forgot to tell my Dad that Justin was a vegetarian, and he had made meatloaf for dinner.  Justin decided to eat the meatloaf and hasn’t been a vegetarian since.  I always think of this every time we eat meatloaf together.

The recipe!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk and bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased loaf pan.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.

I would suggest pairing this recipe with a nice red wine and steamed asparagus on the side.

The great thing about this recipe was that the meatloaf was super moist.  We would also suggest putting the loaf pan on a cookie tray, because some of the spill over kind of made a bit of a fire in our oven.  It’s ok though, the meatloaf still turned out well. Phew!

A lovely weekend meal, and Justin had leftovers for lunch today, and we’ll have enough for leftovers for dinner too!!  Yum!

  1. This looks great for colder weather! I don’t think I’ve ever made meatloaf before – weird huh?? I want to try it this week for sure!

  2. That IS weird!! Try it…I’m having leftovers for lunch right now….deelicious.

  3. OK, I did! It was almost juicy when cutting it! I think my breadcrumbs were a bit stale, and I might do seasoned ones next time. Overall good though and very easy!
