Crock-Pot Meatloaf


2 beaten eggs

3/4 c. milk

2/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs

1 tsp salt

2 T. grated onions

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.


1/4 C. Ketchup

2 T. brown sugar

1 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg


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.
