“With this recipe you can enjoy a taste of sausage and grits in a meatloaf. This recipe uses the grits as a binder instead of the bread crumbs used in a traditional meatloaf recipe. The slow cooking method results in a firm yet moist meatloaf that not only tastes great for dinner, but can be thinly sliced for next day lunch sandwiches. Use your favorite barbecue sauce instead of ketchup, if you prefer. Serve alone, with gravy, with ketchup or BBQ sauce. Makes great sandwiches cold or warmed in a buttered fry pan. ” - by Jane Ruby
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Fold each sheet of aluminum foil in half lengthwise, then fold in half lengthwise again, to make 2 strips of foil 4 inches wide by 16 inches long. Place the strips into the bottom of a slow cooker in a cross, so that the long ends of the strips come partway up the inside of the cooker (to make lifting handles). Spray the inside of the slow cooker and the foil strips with cooking spray.
- Mix together the ground beef, pork sausage, egg whites, grits, onion powder, garlic powder, ketchup, and liquid smoke flavoring until thoroughly combined, and form into a rounded loaf. Gently place the loaf into the slow cooker on top of the crossed foil strips.
- Cover the cooker, set on Low, and cook for 5 to 6 hours. To serve, carefully hold the ends of the foil strips, and gently lift the meat loaf from the cooker by the foil handles to place on a serving platter for slicing.

"As the originator of this recipe I give it 5 stars for convenience, simplicity, versatility, and the high "leftover" value. You can use 1 large egg instead of the egg whites and change out your spices..." See more to give it a different flavor. The second time I prepared this I used a package of Italian seasonings and tomato sauce (instead of ketchup). The third time I used hot pork sausage and skipped the onion powder and hot sauce. Caution: whatever sauce you use (ketchup, tomato, teriyaki, barbeque, etc.) don't go more than 1/2 cup or else the loaf will not hold its shape."
"Made exactly as written even the tinfoil handles - I think those must have been written for a small, round crockpot not the oblonge ones cause they weren't really much help, but a couple of wide spatu..." See morelas did the trick. Overall it tasted pretty good, might tweek the seasonings a little but other than that we enjoyed it."
"Well, I was worried about this recipe. And there was really nothing to be worried about. 1st bite I had tasted like pure sausage(must have been a chunk I didn't blend thoroughly)...so I took that the ..." See morewhole meatloaf was the same taste all the way threw. I was wrong. It did have an italian flavor to it. But I'm not used to this style at all. It was very good overall and moist and no where did I feel or taste any gritty texture, you would have never known there were grits as a binder in this recipe. However, one thing I think bread crumbs or crackers do that grits do not. Bread crumbs and crackers soak up and mellow out the spices in meatloaf and grits are so small they do not. But that's not a bad thing. I'd see my self making again. My kids loved it, loved it more then myself. But as long as they were pleased. Then that's okay..thanks"
