Crock-Pot Meat Loaf
I love making meat loaf in my slow cooker because it always comes out moist and never dry. And the ketchup and brown sugar glaze has to be my favorite part.
They key to making a good meat loaf in your slow cooker is to use extra lean ground beef. I used a 96% lean ground beef as that the leanest I can find at my local grocery stores.
Using extra lean ground beef means that your meatloaf won’t come out greasy. In fact there really should be very little fatty drippings left in your slow cooker if you use a nice lean hamburger meat.
I kept the seasonings in this classic meat loaf pretty basic with some Italian seasoned bread crumbs, a little Italian cheese and salt and pepper. You could of course play with the flavor profile by adding some additional spices and herbs. Sometimes I notch up the Italian flavor by adding a teaspoon or two of my homemade Italian dressing seasoning mix.
For Sunday dinner (or any night of the week really) this meat loaf is nice when served with mashed potatoes and your favorite vegetable side dish. Green beans would be fantastic and a classic combination I think.
