Fall = Meatloaf in the crock pot!

I was excited to get out the crock pot today and make one of our favorites, meatloaf!  It's funny...with all the meatloaf jokes out there, it really is one of our favorite meals.  I make a simple recipe and my only complaint is the loaf usually falls apart when I cut it.  But, who cares...we are going to cut it up anyway!


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup ketchup (plus a little more to drizzle over the loaf)
Combine all ingredients.  Shape into a loaf.  Put in crock pot.  Top with ketchup.  Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours (High: 4-6 hours).  

I usually cook on low, but today I didn't make up the loaf till lunchtime and cooked on high.  It was just as good!  

I always serve with mash potatoes and tonight I tried the new Ore-Ida Steam and Mash Cut Russet Potatoes. They were so easy and really creamy and yummy.  Very homemade, without all the peeling and boiling of potatoes.
