Meatloaf Recipe



Welcome to the Recipe part of Podcast Lost in Space. This week we once again jump back in time to review the infamous meatloaf recipe from Ryan’s early trials.

tsp = teaspoon

Tbsp = Tablespoon

lbs = Pounds


Meatloaf itself

  • 1 1/2lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 Large Onion – chopped
  • 1/4 Cup of Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup of Tomato Sauce (Not Spaghetti sauce!) – generally buy sauce in a glass jar so that you can easily reseal it
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten (this means dumped into a bowl and mixed up with a fork)
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs (you can buy from a store. If you forget them crumble up crackers [roughly half a pack of ritz crackers])
  • 2 tsp of prepare Mustard


  • 2 Tbsp of Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp of Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp of Brown Sugar

Necessary equipment

  • Meatloaf Pan: It’s also a bread pan but the size is 9-by-5 inch. Make Sure you buy this before hand if you don’t have one.
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Bowl
  • Oven


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a fancy convection oven knock it down to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly saute the Onions (only slightly brown)
  3. In a large bowl combine ketchup, tomato sauce, salt, eggs, bread crumbs, onions and mustard. Blend all the ingredients together
  4. Add the ground beef to the bowl as well. Mix it with the rest of the ingredients
  5. Pour/spread ~2Tbsp of Tomato Sauce onto the bottom of the meatloaf pan
  6. Add the Beef Mixture into the pan (form it into something that looks like a normal loaf of bread’s top)
  7. In a small bowl, mix the Glaze/Topping ingredients together
  8. Spread the glaze over the top of the meatloaf, if  you need more glaze maintain the ratio and make more.
  9. Bake at 400 (or 350) from 35 mins
  10. Cover the meatloaf with tin foil and bake for another 10 mins or until the juices that bubble up along side run clear.
  11. Let Rest for a few minutes before eating.
  12. Enjoy!

Goes good with Mashed Potatoes.
