This is very good. If you like, 2 hrs before done you can put ketchup on top of loaf and let cook the last 2 hrs. I cook mine like this all the time now as in oven it tends to dry out and you would think by cooking in slow cooker it would turn out mushy but it doesn't.

  • 1 Large Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 Large Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 Cup Milk

    Super easy, inexpensive and tasty! We have a small crockpot so we actually made 2 smaller loafs and layers them with foil. Worked perfect.

    Side note: We made the Chicken Verde last night, saved some of the leftover juice. It solidified in the fridge over night. We spooned the “jelly” over the meatloaf and let that flavor cook in as well. Fabulous combination!!!

    This was horrible. It was too dry.

  3. Pam

    I use Tastefully Simple’s Onion, Onion in place of Onion Soup Mix for everything — Onion Soup Mix has too much salt!

    Do you put the meat in the slow cooker raw?

    Did you check the internal temp, Traci? It’s done when the center reaches at least 160 degrees…

  6. Traci

    I only used 1.75lbs of ground beef and only 1/2 cup of milk and it’s still not done after 7 hrs! :’(

    Great idea Elizabeth to use Italian bread crumbs instead of the soup mix! Karmin, I’m just reading the ingredients list on my packet. You could also make your own mix with some beef bouillon, onion powder, garlic powder and some pepper.

  8. Karmin G.

    Thoughts about a suggestion to the Lipton Onion Soup Mix? I see Elizabeth’s alternative. My son is allergic to corn, so the LOSM is out. Not sure about Italian Bread Crumbs.

    I was so tickled that I was able to cook a meatloaf in the crockpot. I halved the recipe and cooked it in a tiny crockpot. I used the foil balls as a support. I will definitely be cooking this again.

    Made this Last night and my husband loved it. I didn’t have the onion soup mix and I used Italian style bread crumbs. Defiantly a keeper.

    Kristy, it should be the same consistency as when you bake it in the oven. You may need to add more ground meat.

  12. Kristy P.

    when mixing this it seemed very mushy and runny. will it work?

    Debbie, it does not matter which side you cook the meatloaf on. (looked it up on Reynold’s) Not sure why it turned out crumbly/mushy…what was the fat content of your meat?

  14. Debbie G.

    I must have done something wrong – should you have a certain side (shiny or flat) facing out? I also rolled up the foil to put on the bottom. After cooking for a little over 9 hours, it still didn’t seem like it was done and was crumbly/mushy… Any suggestions?
    However, it did taste great!

  15. Lyndsi D.

    Amazing! Added about 1T A1 steak sauce to the meat before mixing. Glazed the meatloaf with A1 steak sauce instead of ketchup 2 hours before the meatloaf was done cooking.

    Julie ~ I usually just get what’s on sale in the 85/15 or 90/10. You can roll up the foil in little balls and place in the bottom of the crock. Then set your meatloaf on top of the balls, so it’s not sitting in grease while it’s crockin’.

  17. Julie R.

    Do you use extremely lean beef? Because I use 80/20 and I can’t imagine that my meatloaf sitting in all that grease wouldn’t make it soggy.

  18. Kate W.

    AMAZING! I have never like baked meatloaf, and will never bake one again! Just for a little extra flavor I added about 1 tsp worcestershire, 2 tsp Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt & 1/2 tsp celery salt.
