Slow Cooker Meat Loaf


Serves: 9

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 7 hours total, 1 on high and 6 on low

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

This 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. To lower the sodium, eliminate the chili sauce on top.

Ingredients

2 pounds ground beef, extra lean

1/2 onion(s), medium, minced

1 egg(s), 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.
