Re: Anyone here use a crockpot?

Slow-Cooker Meatloaf

3/4c ketchup (you can use spicy ketchup if you prefer)
1 1/2lbs ground beef
3/4c bread crumbs (I like seasoned but you can use regular too)(if you use panko, it will be very dry so you will need to add more ketchup)
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1/2c-1c finely chopped or grated veggies
1/4c grated parmesan
1 egg
1 1/2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

-Fold 2 pieces of foil into an + and place in slow cooker to line it
-Mix 1/2c of ketchup with all other ingredients into a bowl. Mix well and shape into a 7x4x2 inch loaf. Place in center of slow cooker (make sure the loaf doesn't touch the edges. Spread remaining ketchup on top and sides of loaf.
-Cover and cook on low 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

This is the only meatloaf my DH will eat. He is so picky. I usually break the recipe down to use only a pound of ground beef since we are a small family. The finely chopped or grated veggies, I usually use carrots, celery, and/or broccoli. I use whatever we have as leftovers or needs to be used up. I usually grate them with my fine cheese grater. You could also use green peppers but I dont because I don't like them. The veggies will change the color of the the meatloaf, mine is usually kind of orange since I put a ton of carrots into it. If you use really watery veggies, then you may want to add more bread crumbs or the meatloaf can fall apart, it still tastes so good though!

Yeah! I love this recipe! I make it all the time! I dont precook my noodles though. It saves so much prep time and they end up al dente when it is done, which I prefer!

Re: Anyone here use a crockpot?

i make all my bread at home in my crockpot! soo easy! and so good and sweet. recipe is good for altering it too. threw some fruit in it one time, other time through alot of herbs and garlic to go with spaghetti. so delicious...

Sugar 2 tsp
warm water 1 1/4 cups
envelope active dry yeast 1 envelope (8 g)

stir water and sugar together in a bowl. sprinkle yeast on top. let sit for 10 minutes. stir to dissolve yeast.

all purpose flour 2 cups
sugar 2 TBsp
Cooking oil 2 TBsp
salt 1 tsp

add flour, sugar, cooing oil and salt. mix together till dough is slicky sticky with no lumps.

all purpose flour 1 cup

knead in flour little at at a time, till dough is stiff. may not use all of flour, and may need more flour depending on the dough.

grease bottom of slow cooker, turn dough into slow cooker. lay about 5 paper towels on top, put a wooden match or skewers between top of slow cooker and paper towel to let steam escape. put lid on top of paper towels. cook on high for 2 hrs. do not lift lid for first 1 1/2 hours. loosen sides with a knife and turn out of slow cooker when done.


I do suggest doubling it if you have a larger slow cooker.
