Tuesday's List - Crock Pot Recipes

Kelly's Famous Meat Loaf 
(from the Southern Living Slow Cooker cookbook) 

The thing that totally makes this meatloaf, besides the fact that you can set it up in the crock pot and then go do something else for 4 hours, is the sauce.  The combination of ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar really has a fantastic flavor.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

1 1/2 pounds ground round or ground sirloin
1 (1 oz) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup ketchup, divided
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 large egg
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1. Combine ground beef, soup mix, 1/2 cup ketchup, and next 6 ingredients; shape mixture ito an 8 x 4 inch loaf. Place loaf in a lightly greased 3 quart oval slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook on HIGH 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 3 hours. Remove ceramic insert from cooker, and carefully pour grease off meat (return insert to cooker.
3. Stir together remaining 1/2 ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard in a small bowl; spread over meat loaf.
