Sunday supper: Crock Pot "baked" meatloaf

A ground  beef-ground turkey meatloaf is Crock pot "baking" today, using some more home made bread crumbs, egg, milk, Parmesan cheese (a go to cheese for sodium watchers), celery, onion, spices. Topped with a bit of BBQ sauce that I want to use up, in lieu of the typical ketchup that I'd otherwise use. Sides will be mashed potatoes, roasted Butternut squash, salad.S

How did your meatloaf come out in the crockpot? I've never used the crockpot for meatloaf. I actually always forget to use my slow cooker these days. I'm home mostly now so I just use my oven because I have time to cook dinner later in the day. When I worked, I used the slow cooker more often. What else do you cook in the crockpot?

Kearny-I have made it this way for years. Comes out great, nice & moist. I use the CP and other appliances over the oven as electric is costly. I also use the CP for soup, stews, rotisserie syle chicken, baked and tomato style baked beans, chilli, ck cacciatore, stufedpeppers, pot roast, turkey breast, spaghetti sauce, meatballs etc

I've never used the crock pot for meat loaf either. I can imagine a lot of grease on the bottom but that is better than in the loaf! I add lots of onions and peppers in my mixture and sometimes grate carrots though. Another trick is adding oatmeal. Yesterday I made a delicious French dip with a beef rump roast I got for $3 a pound. I used the crock pot, added an onion, some seasonings and a couple cups of water and the broth was really tasty.. I don't cook beef often but I couldn't pass the $3 sale. I cut the roast in half too so have another portion for later.

Thank you for answering my question about the meals you prepare in your crockpot. I am going to try them out. I have a gas kitchen stove so it's not as expensive to use as electric I would think. Still, I like the way crockpots make food so stay moist. Thanks again.
