Crock Pot Meat Loaf
Sometimes we all need meals that are tasty but easy to make and ready when we get home from our busy day out. Well here is my recipe for a good meat loaf in the crock pot, Plus I make a Fresh Basil-Mint Pesto that I put over the meat loaf before Serving. Enjoy Good Food
I put this with a Fresh Tomato Basil Pasta that I cooked the sauce for the night before then I just warm it up and add the cheese last and serve.
What you need:
2 1/2 lbs. ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 lb of ground pork
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic, fresh or dried, minced
1 tsp thyme fresh or 1/2 tsp dried
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1 - 2 T. mustard
1/4 c. ketchup
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 c. breadcrumbs or crackers crushed well
1/4 c. milk, (you can even use Almond Milk, but you can use what you have on hand, even water)
1 onion, small, diced
1 small can of tomato sauce for topping meat loaf the last hour or so
Honestly BEST and Easiest Meatloaf EVER! It is moist and has a ton of delicious flavor!
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
Form into a loaf to fit crock pot. Place a strip of foil under the meatloaf and place in crock pot, cover top of meatloaf with tomato sauce --the last hour before it's done.
Cover. Cook on Low for 8 hours.The last hour don't forget to top with the tomato sauce
NOTE: Foil is to make it easier to lift out! TOP with a little fresh basil mint pesto and serve
Make Pesto up the night before
