Meatloaf Made Easy

I LOVE MEATLOAF - I really do!

Every year since I can remember my Mom let's us pick a birthday meal and mine is always meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn!  I don't venture far from my Mom's recipe for meatloaf but this version in 101 Super-Easy Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook  from Gooseberry Patch seemed similar just with the addition of sausage - which seemed valid for hog farmers and it's made in a crock-pot!!!

Gooseberry Patch crockpot meat loaf recipe

Meatloaf Made Easy

Recipe by Gooseberry Patch and Jent

  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 1 cup catsup

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • Cooking Directions
    1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except catsup and brown sugar. Form mixture into a rounded loaf. Place in slow cooker and poke a few holes in the top of meatloaf with a skewer. In a bowl, stir together catsup and brown sugar. Spoon mixture over meatloaf. Cover and cook on low setting for 3 to 5 hours, until meatloaf is no longer pink in the center.

    This was so simple, made the house smell good all day and tasted just like my Mom's {bonus} - everyone loved it {bonus bonus}!

    To make this meal complete I also made 2 other crockpot recipes - I filled 3 crockpots that morning and by evening an entire supper was ready to serve - all 3 dishes were a hit and so easy - this whole meal is going on my 'busy in the field' go to's!!!


    1. Sounds delicious Jent thank you. Hug B

    2. Jent,
      I am a meatloaf fan too!
      I like the sounds of this recipe and can always use a crockpot idea.

      The combination of sausage and beef is one of my favorites. My Mom picked up the "secret" from the Ladies at Church when she was first married.

    3. What size crockpot did you use? I'm assuming an oval one??
