Crock-Pot Meatloaf by Gail Farber of Romeoville, Ill.
Difficulty: Easy

"GMA" put out the call and hundreds of viewers e-mailed us their super slow-cooker recipes.

After thousands of votes, Gail Farber's Crock-Pot Meatloaf was one of the five finalists in Emeril's Slow-Cooker Challenge.


  • Meatloaf
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 2/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp onions, grated
  • 1/2 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground meat (I use 1/3 lb. ground pork, 2/3 lb. ground beef. Sometimes I use 1/3 lb. ground veal and just 1/3 lb. ground beef.)
  • Sauce
  • 1/4 c. Ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Cooking Directions

    Put loaf in Crock-Pot on low 5-6 hours (Longer is OK.)

    Pour sauce over meat in the last 15 minutes on high.

    Sometimes I double the recipe to ensure leftover meatloaf sandwiches.

    I have been making this for at least 25 years, maybe longer and have had many a meatloaf party for family and friends.

    It's a great comfort food anytime, and my gentleman friend said he fell in love with my meatloaf first.
