With fall almost here this Slow Cooker Meatloaf Recipe is going to become a weekly meal in our house. This past weekend I was asking the family what they would like for dinner and everyone was wanting meatloaf. I was excited as it allows me to stretch my ground beef further which saves me $$’s. Plus I could use my slow cooker and not heat up the kitchen (a big plus). Meatloaf is one of my favorite comfort foods especially when fall arrives. A few weeks ago I shared our Meatloaf Cupcakes Recipe . They were a hit!
Slow Cooker Meatloaf Recipe
I was a bit worried about making a meatloaf in our crock-pot. My hubby said there was NO WAY! Ha ha I set out to prove him wrong.
To my amazement our Slow Cooker Meatloaf Recipe came out BETTER than the meatloaf I have cooked in the oven. So much better.
Oh and it came out looking beautiful too! The potatoes and carrots were a wonderful addition and allowed me to cook everything right in the slow cooker.
1 1/2 lb Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
3/4 cup Milk
2/3 cup Bread Crumbs
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Dried Minced Onions
1/2 tsp Sage
1/4 cup Ketchup
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 lb Carrots
1 1/2 lb Potatoes
Beat eggs in a large bowl.
Add milk, bread crumbs, onion salt and sage and mix well.
Crumble ground meat into mixture and mix well.
Form into a loaf to sit in the middle of your slow cooker.
Peel potatoes and carrots; cut into 1″ chunks and place around meat loaf.
Cook on low 5-6 hours.
Mix together ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire.
Spread sauce on top of meat loaf and cook for 30 minutes on high.
If you are looking to make a wonderful and tasty meatloaf you will want to whip up this recipe. I do not think I will be cooking meatloaf in the often very often in the future. The whole family kiddos included loved this one. I am thinking I will make two next time and add peppers and onions to the adult loaf. Without them this meatloaf was great but, I am anxious to try those additions next time around.
