I am not a huge fan of meatloaf. I used to make it all of the time when Chad and I were first married because it was one of the only things I could make and not burn. But as my (ahem) culinary skills evolved, the trusty meatloaf took a back seat. But … a few months ago I came across this recipe from one of my favorite crock-pot sites and we loved it! The Lipton soup made it super flavorful and doing it in the crockpot made it really “loafy.” Is that a word? I’m not saying it’s a healthy option, but it was delish and great for busy moms. Know any?
1 Lg. Onion chopped
1 Lg. Bell Pepper Chopped
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 Cup of Milk
3/4 Cup dry bread crumbs or cracker crumbs (I used Nabisco crackers)
1 Envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
2-3 lbs ground beef
Line Crock Pot with foil (easy cleanup!)
Mix together the Eggs, Milk, Cracker Crumbs, & Onion Soup Mix. Then add meat and Onions and Peppers. Mix all thoroughly and shape into loaf. Stick it in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8hrs.
It was looking a little bland about an hour before I served it, so I put a little brown sugar glaze on it and let it cook for another hour and a half. Just do it to taste, but the one I use goes something like this:
1 Cup Ketchup
4 tablespoons Brown Sugar
4 tsp. Cider Vinegar
