Found this recipe many years ago in my very first Crockery Cookery Cookbook. If you like meatloaf either hot or for cold sandwiches this has a real nice flavor especially with sweet sauce on the top!
- Combine eggs with milk, bread crumbs, onion, salt, and sage, and meat.
- Mix well and shape into a 9x5 inches.
- rectangle or oval.
- Carefully place into slow cooker pot.
- Cook on low for about 6-7 hours.
- Combine sauce ingredients and pour over meat loaf and cook on high for about 15 minutes.
This was a very moist and delicious meatloaf. Added pepper and chopped green pepper to it. I trick I learned a long time ago when cooking a meatloaf in the crockpot is to make five strips of aluminum foil and criss-cross them in the crockpot with strips going up the sides. Place the meatloaf onto of aluminum foil. When the meat is done, you can lift it out easily.
Good, basic meatloaf. My trick to keeping a crockpot meatloaf from becoming greasy on the bottom is to place two or three slices of bread in the crockpot first, and place the meatloaf on top of them. It makes it easier to lift out, and the bread absorbs the excess grease.
This was great! Moist, well seasoned and beautiful when done. I spread it flat in the crockpot then tucked in the sides (so it didn't burn on the edges) then I formed a hole in the center (so it would cook all the way through). My whole family loved it.
