If you are using a fan assisted oven for a recipe not written for that then you will be cooking it at too high a temperature.
Try reducing the temperature and/or place the container (loaftin?) of the meatloaf in a bain marie and cook. Now, what is a bain marie? Place the meatloaf mix in a loaf tin, cover tightly with foil and place in a roasting tin. Add hot/boiling water to a depth on the side of the tin to about 2 inches and bake.
Hope this helps,
