This is an easy recipe for meatloaf that you can make in the morning and serve that night. I actually really enjoy meatloaf even though it’s not something we cook very often. The only thing better to me than meatloaf and potatoes is meatloaf and mashed potatoes!! But I went for regular potatoes this time.
When I put my loaf in the crockpot it almost looked like a heart shape. I was tempted to make it into a heart and call this a Valentines Day Meatloaf but umm yeah meatloaf is not that romantic.
When you add your potatoes, make sure you’re not adding too many. If the crock-pot is more than 75% full whatever is at the top isn’t going to cook very well. I had to rearrange the potatoes at the end so the ones on the top could finish cooking.
