Meat Loaf from the Slow Cooker
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 3 hours
Loved it and so did my kiddo.
I loved the inside texture of this meatloaf because it was perfectly cooked and not at all dry. I also loved that this could just be prepared and forgotten in the slow cooker. However, I didn't achieve that nice browned edge that I get when I make it in the oven (although it sounds like some reviewers did), and the sauce kind of became watery on top. So, although this tasted pretty good, it won't replace the oven version for me.
I've never made meatloaf in a slow cooker and I'm so glad I tried this recipe! Instead of adding the 1/2 pound of sausage, I used 2 lbs of ground beef and did add a few more crushed saltine crackers. The meatloaf lifted out of the slow cooker easily, was nicely browned around the edges and had a nice, moist texture. This dish met with rave reviews and being able to fix it and forget it in the slow cooker made it a winner! I'll definitely make this one again!
Love this slow cooker meatloaf!
Very Good...Mixture seemed a little loose, so I added a few more crushed crackers
I'm planning to make this, but I wonder... I use Crockpot Liners all the time, they are so easy and eliminate most of the mess and clean up. I love them especially at winter holidays when I put a turkey breast in the crockpot to cook - Wow - just lift out over the sink! So, I'm curious if I really need to use the strips of foil also since the liners are pretty strong. Comments? Suggestions? Thank you!
This is the only way I make meatloaf!
