What could be easier than this recipe for an Italian-inspired meat loaf made in the slow cooker? No fuss, easy cleanup and great taste; it's all right here! —Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin
"Our family and friends love this no-fail recipe. It's a staple in our home." A topping of bacon adds wonderful flavor to this moist meat loaf. The brown sugar ketchup glaze takes it to a whole new level. Yum! —Zac Freeman and Paige Ponder, Chicago, Illinois
Our two girls refused to eat meat loaf. But when I modified my recipe by adding pizza sauce to the meat mixture and covering the loaf with sauce and mozzarella cheese, they couldn't get enough! My husband and I enjoy it, too!—Loy Acerra Crane, Jackson, Tennessee
We love Grandma's version of meat loaf so much that we have it at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter—the holidays wouldn't be the same without it! It's just as good the next day, as a cold sandwich.—Joan Frey, Spencer, Ohio
"My husband, Wayne, asks for this meat loaf all the time," reports Edna Lauderdale of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "We like it spicy, so we use hot sausage rather than mild. Slices are terrific drizzled with ketchup, served with mashed potatoes and gravy, or in meat loaf sandwiches the next day."
