Easy Slow Cooker Mashed Potato Stuffed Meatloaf #5FIX

"5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. As a busy Mom, the slow cooker is my friend! This recipe will allow a Sunday dinner any night of the week. Be sure not to over fill the center, or it will separate, exposing your mashed potatoes. The beef will shrink slightly in the slow cooker. The best way to easily remove your meat loaf in one piece is to use a slow cooker liner and remove it supporting the sides, keeping your meatloaf in one piece until ready to slice."

  1. Mine didn't come out looking much like a meatloaf but let me tell you it was absolutely fabulous! My husband had 3 plates and he's not a big guy. Picture is of his first ridiculously sized portion. I added about 1/3 cup chopped onion to the meat and next time will only cook 6 hours. We just used a spoon to serve. Couldn't be easier to make. I'm sharing this recipe with friends.
