    internetnut's Note:

    This meatloaf has the best smell when being put together. While this wasn't my families favorite as yes it lacked flavor we loved how moist it was. I plann to try to add more flavor to this recipe. When I made this meatloaf I made it in a 6 quart crockpot which was just fine. I could only find and used a 28oz bag of potatoes. I also could only fine ranch and herb shake in bake. I got this recipe from Food Network. It's a Sandra Lee recipe.

      I saw this episode of Semi Homemade, and wanted to make the recipe. I have to agree with Internetnut, this meatloaf is really rather bland. I liked the concept of having creamy, cheesy, mushroom and onion potatoes as a side dish that cooked at the same time, but they were also dark, greasy, and not very appealing. The meatloaf was incredibly moist, but I cut down the milk to 1/4 cup and it stayed in one piece that I could remove from the crock pot. This recipe is great in theory, but needs work. Thanks for posting it!

      What a mess. It was too salty, and too moist. After this, it will take a lot to convince me that you can make meatloaf in a crock pot. It fell apart. The soup mixture would make a good gravy for a meatloaf, but for now, I'll stick to the oven method.
