I came across this recipe & it was the best I have ever made!!! NO leftovers in our house so it was definitely a huge hit. I usually double my recipe since I have a 5-quart slow cooker. I came across this recipe on allrecipes.com & I highly recommend it.
I USUALLY DOUBLE THIS TOPPING PART SO THAT IT COVERS THE WHOLE MEATLOAF - IT'S ALL IN WHAT YOU PREFER. THIS IS NOT THE DOUBLED RECIPE.
bread crumbs, seasone
lipton beefy onion soup mix
COMBINE EGGS, MILK, BREAD CRUMBS, LIPTON BEEFY ONION SOUP, & MUSHROOMS IN A LARGE BOWL. CRUMBLE GROUND BEEF OVER MIXTURE AND STIR WELL TO COMBINE. SHAPE INTO A ROUND LOAF; PLACE IN A 5-QUART SLOW COOKER. COVER & COOK ON LOW 5-6 HOURS.
I USUALLY USE 3 LBS. OF GROUND BEEF SO I WILL DOUBLE THIS RECIPE. THE RECIPE I POSTED IS NOT THE DOUBLED VERSION. THE COOKING TIME I ADD AN EXTRA HOUR.
MEAT LOAF MIXTURE: Combine eggs, milk, bread crumbs, beefy lipton onion soup, mushrooms in a large bowl. Crumble ground beef over mixture and stir well to combine. Shape into a round loaf; place in a 5-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 5 to 6 hours. Grease from the ground beef will accumulate at the bottom of your slow cooker & there is NO need to add liquid and/or grease your slow cooker prior to placing the meatloaf in the slower cooker I have made this many times and have NEVER had a problem with it scorching and/or burning @ the bottom or on the sides. I do, however, pull it out of my slow cooker about a 1/2 prior to it being served . . . add the sauce (topping) and place it in 13x9 pan to help dry it out a bit from the grease and add the sauce and DO NOT cover it. I NEVER have leftovers & this is the best the meatloaf recipe I have come across and wanted to sharted. I also always double the sauce that goes on top and I do use 3 lbs. of ground beef so I just doulbe that part of the recipel
TOPPING FOR MEATLOAF: Whisk ketchup, brown sugar, ground mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl; spoon sauce over meatloaf. Return to slow cooker and cook on Low until heated through, about 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. I DO PULL MY MEATLOAF OUT & put in a 13x9 & then put this sauce on. I usually put it in the oven for 30 mins. @ 350 degrees to dry it out just a bit UNCOVERED ... You WILL NOT be disappointed!!
