Slow Cooked Meatloaf & Potatoes

Slow Cooked Meatloaf & Potatoes
  Meatloaf is the American staple at the dinner table because it is fast to make, does not require a lot of work and it can be good for you.
However, being able to cook up a meatloaf after an 8-hour day at work can be a daunting task. There are just too many things that happen for you to take the time and prepare a delicious, hearty meatloaf.

Let’s face it… your life does not revolve around the kitchen.
 However, you could simplify your time if you had a crock pot. There are so many delicious recipes you can make with crock pots but this one is my absolute favorite.
 This recipe features a meat loaf that is cooked with some hearty gold potatoes and rosemary. The result is this rich, indulgent, hearty flavor. All you need to do is throw in the ingredients and set your crock pot for 6-8 hours while your off at work.

  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  1. Place potatoes in bottom of a slow cooker.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, sausage, onion, 3/4 cup ketchup, cracker crumbs, eggs and mix well.
  3. Place over potatoes and shape to form a loaf.
  4. In the same bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard and the remaining ketchup; mix well. Spread over top of loaf.

~*~ Helpful Hints ~*~
Make sure that you remove the castings from the sausage before you add this to the mix. This may sound amateur but you will be surprised how many people do not do this.
You can use a leaner meat if you want to. I suggested beef & turkey but you can use whatever you desire.
Make sure to drain the excess liquid from the pot.
Garnish with Rosemary.
