While visiting my parents I needed a simple meatloaf recipe to come up with. So I came up with this, and it turned out well.  Since returning to Kansas my daughter has asked for it so many times, I made it again.

Crock-Pot Easy Meatloaf

Ingredients

2 Pounds Extra Lean Ground Beef (Must be 93% or Better)
2 Eggs, Beaten
3/4ths Cup Milk
3/4th Cup Oatmeal or bread crumbs
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth (Can use a Bouillon Cube with Boiling Water as Well)
1/4th Cup of Shredded Onion
1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic (optional, I use Refrigerated Squeeze version)
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4th Teaspoon Pepper
Heinz Chili Sauce (optional)
Liner

Instructions

  1. Beat eggs.
  2. Combine eggs, milk, oatmeal, spices, onion,garlic, and broth.
  3. Add hamburger and mix well.
  4. If mixture seems to be a bit runny add 1 tablespoon more of oatmeal.
  5. Place liner in crock.
  6. Scoop hamburger mixture in crock, keeping the loaf away from the edges.
  7. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, check internal temperature to make sure it has reached 160 degrees F.
  8. May top with Chili Sauce, if you so choose.
  9. It’s easiest to pull it out with the liner and place in another dish, like a Pyrex or plate and transfer to another plate with two spatula’s under the meatloaf.

Notes

If you have an older crock-pot expect this may take longer then 5-6 hours. Older crock-pots don’t cook as hot, thus don’t cook as fast. My Crocks are all 5 years or less so they cook much faster. I would start with 6 hours, check with your thermometer, and be sure to cut through it a few times before eating, making sure it has cooked all the way through!

I do not suggest you try and cook this on high.

This makes a soft meatloaf…very moist, not dry.
