What could be more comforting to come home to than moist and tender homemade meat loaf? "This one retains its shape in the slow cooker and slices beautifully," reports Marna Heitz from Farley, Iowa. "Because potatoes and carrots cook along with it, the entire dinner is ready at the same time."
Grated carrots and cheese add a hint of color and good taste to this nourishing, homey loaf. And my family always looks forward to meatloaf sandwiches the next day! —Sandy Etelamaki, Ishpeming, Michigan
