Crockpot Meatloaf Dinner

This was a huge hit with the family tonight. Yay! And thank goodness for Slow Cooker Bags for easy and fast clean up! I love Reynolds.

First I took a bag each of baby red and yellow potatoes, cut into bit size pieces and put in the bottom of the crockpot(in bag). Sprinkle with spices such as salt, fresh ground pepper, parsley flakes, onion powder, etc.... and sprinkle with olive oil. Mix it well. Then you place the meat"loaf" on top of it.

For meatloaf:
3 lbs.(we like leftovers) extra lean ground beef
2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1 cup of oatmeal(uncooked)
2 eggs
1 cup of ketsup
2-3 Tbls. spicy brown mustard
1 envelope onion soup mix
salt, pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients and shape into a loaf and place on top of potatoes. Drizzle ketsup over the top of the loaf, cover, and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5 hours. Use a meat thermometer to test for doneness. Serve with a veggie, our kids favorite with THIS dish is corn.

You have to post this on the recipe board. Sounds delish!

not that I want to pull a fork out & stab the recipe or anything - but It looks good - I tried meatloaf in a crock before, it burned the dickens out of it! Once bitten.....
