Healthy Slow-Cooked Meat Loaf Recipe
- 1 cup soft bread crumbs
- 1-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
- 1 Eggland's Best Egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
- Cut four 20-in. x 3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 3-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, 1 cup spaghetti sauce, egg, onion, and seasonings. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf; place in the center of the strips.
- Spoon remaining spaghetti sauce over meat loaf. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until a thermometer reads 160°. Using foil strips as handles, remove meat loaf to a platter. Yield: 8 servings.
Enjoy this recipe with a light-bodied red wine such as Pinot Noir.

delicious, moist and SO easy to do! Loved it!!
This sounds like a good recipe. I would use a slow cooker bag inplace of the foil strips.
I hesitate to try this recipe due to aluminum strips used to line slow cooker. Acidic tomato sauce and foil don`t mix in my opinion
This meatloaf was good! Since my family is on a low sodium diet I used half of low sodium spaghetti sauce and half of the regular spaghetti sauce and it still tasted good. I also did not use salt. Thanks for the recipe. Will use again :-)
My husband doesn't usually care for meat loaf but he liked this one. It was very easy and did cook for us in 3.5 hours. I was pleasantly surprised that it tasted like meatloaf with just a slight Italian edge. I was afraid the spaghetti sauce would be overpowering.
