  1. This recipe sounds Delish! Will there be a lot of drippings at the bottom? If so was thinking about putting some foil in the bottom to set the loaf on. Don’t know if that would work or not.

    • Sherry,

      Thank you so much for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. We truly love this meatloaf. If you fix it in a slow cooker, be sure to add the foil handles (as I call them) to be able to take the meatloaf out of the slow cooker easily. You will have a little drippings in the bottom of the slow cooker depending on the fat content of your ground beef. I use really lean ground beef. If you use add a bunch of same size foil balls to cover the bottom of the slow cooker, it will probably work well. Flatten them the same size so they will support the meatloaf evenly. This will help keep the meatloaf from breaking when you remove it from the oven.
      If you try this, let me know how it works.
      Thank you again for stopping by!!!
      Many blessings and Merry Christmas,

  2. I made this meatloaf yesterday and it was outstanding. My husband who is 65 and has eaten lots of meatloaf including my own recipe i’ve been making for years said that this was theeeeeee best meatloaf he’s ever had. I guess that means this recipe is a handsdown keeper. thank you so much

  3. Very nice recipe, had to try it since I have a rarely used a crock-pot laying around gathering dust.

    Aside from smoking a bit more than expected it was all good and tasted delicious.

  4. Diane, this is brilliant. I LOVE using my crock pot all year, but especially during warmer weather so I don’t heat up my kitchen. I cannot wait to try this- thank you so much!!

  5. Hi Diane,

    Three things:

    1. You remind me of Chonda Pierce (I love her).
    2. This looks terrific and is very similar to my own recipe. I sometimes add sharp cheddar cheese in the center of my loaf.
    3. While I am certain this is wonderful, I have found another way of cooking my meatloaf that is beyond dynamite: cooked in a Ron Popeil Rotisserie Oven. Oh. My. STARS!!! I ‘line’ the bottom of the rotisserie basket with a couple of slices of onion and slices of bread, place the meatloaf mixture on top of that, and top that with more slices of onion and slices of bread. Cook 1 1/2 hours. WOWZERS! We fight over who gets the bread… crisp on the outside, slightly soggy on the reverse and overflowing with flavor…

    Continued blessings to you,

    • Cyndi,

      I only wish I was funny like Chonda Pierce. I love her. She has been through so much but she still finds Joy. I heard she lost her husband a year or so ago. Anyway, I am so thrilled you found Recipes for our Daily Bread. I love your bread and onions idea. I will have to try it the next time I make this Crock-Pot Meatloaf or even cook it in the oven. Thanks for the tip.

      Thank you again for supporting my blog.

  6. Looks yummy! Definitely going to try this one. But I need a question answered first… Oats? Quick cooking? Old fashioned? Does it matter?

  7. In your crock pot recipe, you add 1/2 of the sauce before cooking, but you never mention the rest of the sauce. In the oven recipe you add the other 1/2 of the sauce for the last 10 minutes of baking…what do you suggest?

    • I am glad you caught that. It was confusing. I added the other half of the sauce for the crock-pot meatloaf the last 30 minutes of cooking. When I fix this meatloaf in the oven, I add the rest of the sauce the last 10 minutes of baking it.

      Thanks so much for stopping by.
      Blessings and have a wonderful day!

  8. This looks delicious, I’ve never tried making meatloaf in a crockpot. Looking forward to trying this. Thanks for sharing, coming from Wonderful Wednesdays Blog Hop.

    • Gurvy,

      Crock-Pot meatloaf is really easy and turns out great. If you try it, make sure you use the foil handles likes I made. It makes it so easy to lift the meatloaf out of the crock-pot.

      Blessings and thanks you so much for your support.

  10. Good Evening Diane, I have just shown my husband your recipe for crock pot meatloaf….. and guess what…… it is going to be on the menu this Saturday. He said your recipe looks fabulous. I am going to the butchers on Friday and it will be cooking in my slow cooker on Saturday. Thank you for encouraging me to use my slow cooker more often.
    Best Wishes

    • Teresa,

      Thanks Teresa! I would love to have you over for dinner. I am sure we could discuss blogging for hours.
      If you have never tried making meatloaf in your crock-pot, you will have to try it. The foil makes it so easy.

  11. I love that you tried this on your kid’s suggestion and sounds like it was a surefire hit. My husband would love this one, me not sure, because I am one of those people who are not a huge fan of meatloaf. But thank you for sharing and will totally show to Kevin now!! :)

    • Janine,

      Now that my kids are all older, they are constantly telling me how I could make a recipe better. Usually, it is from my oldest son. He normally just wants more meat or bacon in it. He means well. He is the one who suggested me fixing my meatloaf in the crock-pot. This time he had a great plan.

      Blessings and thanks for stopping by this morning,
      Diane Roark

    • Erlene,

      You will really enjoy this meatloaf if you enjoy meatloaf. I love the sauce on this meatloaf too. It is sweet and tangy. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a message.
