Super Cozy Crock Pot Meat Loaf Recipe

Yum! 5

meatloafIt never occurred to me until I started looking for meat loaf recipes, but you can totally cook meat loaf in your crock pot! Of course -- why didn't I think of that? It makes perfect sense. Here's a recipe for what's called Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf. That sounds promising, doesn't it? It's super simple to prepare, too. It's one of those life-simplifying meals that cooks itself while you get everything else in your busy life done. Or while sledding! If it's still winter where you are, this is a great snow day dinner.

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well (mixture will be moist). Shape into a round loaf; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°.

In a small bowl, whisk the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Spoon over the meat loaf. Cook 15 minutes longer or until heated through. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.

I wonder if ground turkey could be used instead of beef? We don't eat a lot of beef anymore...

This looks disgusting. I don't get the allure of ladies wanting to braise/cook every meal in the crockpot. Meatloaf is delicious because of it's layers of flavor and crusty exterior and moist inside. This just looks like a pile of slop.
