- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Cut three long, narrow strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. (will use later for removal of meat loaf from slow cooker).
- Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 4 or 5 quart slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine first nine ingredients.
- Crumble beef and sausage over mixture and mix well. (Mixture will be moist.).
- Shape into a loaf. Place meat loaf in the center of the strips.
- In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients. Spoon over meat loaf.
