This is great served with our Mock Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a little gravy! Comfort food when you need it most. The meatloaf comes out moist and delicious in the slow cooker. Use extra lean meat and make sure you cook on high for at least 1 hour to quickly bring the cooking temperature up to a safe cooking level.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 7 hours total, 1 on high and 6 on low
2 pounds ground beef, extra lean
1/2 onion, medium, minced
1 egg, large, beaten
2 slices bread, whole wheat, crust removed, cut into small pieces
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, low sodium
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup tomato sauce, low sodium
3/4 cup cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk, shredded
1/3 cup chili sauce (bottled)
Preparation: Double layer two 15 inch long pieces of foil and place in the bottom and up the sides of the slow cooker to form a cradle (this will make it easier to remove the meat loaf when it is done). In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except for the chili sauce (reserve for topping when cooked). Form a loaf with the meat and place it on top of the foil in the slow cooker. Place the lid on and cook on high for 1 hour. Change heat to low and cook for about 6 more hours. When done, hold both sides of the foil and pull up to remove the meat loaf. Spread the chili sauce on top before slicing.
