Classic Meatloaf

I can't say I've ever loved meatloaf, until now. Dianne made it one time for me and it was so great I decided to get the recipe from her. I love how basic it is too, just makes it that much easier to throw together if needed quickly!

Classic Meatloaf

1 1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cups bread, cubed
1/4 cup onions, chopped
2 teaspoons mustard

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix well until combined.
  • Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and put the mixture into it, shaping evenly.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes. Take out of the oven and pour the fat off of it before spreading on the sauce {recipe below}. Once ready, spread the sauce over the top evenly and bake for another 5 minutes.


1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon mustard
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Mix all of the ingredients together.

I served this with garlic mashed potatoes and corn!

  1. This is the most popular dish in our house, Nick always wants it as his birthday meal. The cayenne really adds to the taste of the meatloaf.
