A simple and delicious easy Slow Cooker Meatloaf recipe using a juicy, classic meatloaf recipe and cooked in the Crock Pot.
Slow Cooker Meatloaf
One of our favorite family dinners is meatloaf. My kids love it. My husband loves it. I love it. (You can check out our favorite meatloaf recipe here. Seriously delicious.). It's one of those rare no-fight dinners for us that just makes my day. The one downside to meatloaf is that it requires me to prep it during witching hour and homework help, and that's just all kinds of nightmare-ish things happening. I wanted to know IF and how to cook a meatloaf in a Crockpot because that would just solve all of my problems. You can prep it in the morning, or even as late as lunch time, and it will be ready for dinner, with no crazy prep work during the horrible afternoon witching hours.
This Slow Cooker Meatloaf recipe actually uses our classic favorite family meatloaf recipe. The only difference is that you cook it in the slow cooker. So simple! So yummy!
