Crock Pot Meatloaf....The Good And The Bad!

I found another crock pot meal that will go into my dinner rotations.  We love meatloaf, but I don't make it very often.  We had it recently at our Wednesday dinner at church and it is Aiden's favorite.  He asked why I never make it anymore so I promised him I would the next week.  I decided to give it a try in the crock pot so it would be ready when we got home. 
Overall, it was really easy and really good.  We all liked it with mashed potatoes.  What I didn't really like is using the foil so I will skip that step the next time I make it.  I think if I use some olive oil on the crock pot the meatloaf won't stick.  I also didn't like that the outside edges got a little well done. 

The recipe said to line with foil, I won't next time. 

Ingredients ready to be mixed up

Ready to cook

Ketchup over the top

Ready to eat

Zesty Meatloaf

1 lb. ground beef or turkey (I use turkey)
2 eggs
2 cups bread crumbs
1/4 cup water or apple juice
1 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. salt
1 cup ketchup (divided in half)

Combine all ingredients except 1/2 cup of ketchup.  Shape into loaf and place in crock pot.  Spread remaining ketchup over the top.  Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.  

I actually doubled the recipe this time because I wanted extra for lunches and a quick meatloaf sandwich dinner the next evening in between a golf match and swim team practice.  It was the perfect amount. 

Let me know if you try this out and what you think of it.  Enjoy!

  1. We like meatloaf too but I have never made it in a crockpot. Some people always use foil in theirs but I never have. I use a little olive or vegetable oil spray on the bottom and the sides and clean up is easy. Thanks for the great idea!
