This Easy Meatloaf is a favorite at my house. It’s the recipe we always use when we want meatloaf. It’s perfect with a side of mashed potatoes.
This easy meatloaf recipe here is the only one you will ever need. But first of all I can’t believe it’s 2014 already, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year, though not a great winter. It’s been a long winter already and I try not to think about it because it literally depresses me. We have probably another good 4 to 5 months of winter left here in Calgary, and no I’m not kidding, but we have had snow in June and July here. Go figure. Why do I live here again? Oh because it’s sunny all the time. That must be it.
But you know what’s great on a cold winter day?
I’m not kidding you. I’m not a big fan of meatloaf, but I do like this recipe I have. This meatloaf recipe is so easy to make and just absolutely fabulous. Serve it with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy and you’ve got yourself a wonderful comfort meal. My husband loves this meatloaf recipe and I hope you’ll enjoy it as well.

This Easy Meatloaf is a favorite at my house. It's the recipe we always use when we want meatloaf. It's perfect with a side of mashed potatoes.
- 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 green pepper finely chopped
- 1 large onion finely chopped or grated
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
- 1 cup barbecue sauce I used Guy Fieri's BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray; set aside.
Mix the breadcrumbs with the milk in a big bowl. Add the meat and the rest of the ingredients. Only add about 3/4 cup of the barbecue sauce to the meat mixture. Mix the entire meat mixture really well.
Add the meat mixture to the prepared loaf pan and brush with the remaining barbecue sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
- Bake for about an hour or until done.
Let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing into it.
Tip: Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet as you bake the meatloaf so as not to get your oven dirty.
Serve this over creamy mashed potatoes.
