Made for dinner on friday with potatoes and salad. Was very juicy and tasty!! Never made meatlof in a crock pot before but since I have 2 I can make this and a side at the same time. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.

We really liked this. When my fiance says," Man, this is GOOD", I know it's a keeper. It was sweet, but I was forewarned, so I expected it. I LOVE the apples and onions in this. I made Axe's Lemon Glazed Carrots to go with this. Wonderful meal!!!

This was a strong 4 star recipe for my family. My DH compared the sweet flavor to the cocktail meatballs he loves so was very happy. I did substitute unsweetened applesauce for the diced apples and baked in the oven instead of using a crock pot this time. The meatloaf held together well and slices beautifully. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I will be making this one again.
