This is a pretty good recipe. I find the sausage gives it a greasy taste. I used just lean ground beef. I also add in 1/2 cup of all bran cereal to absorb some of the extra moisture. I also put a handful of baby carrots to the bottom of the slow cooker, to raise the meatloaf out of the fat.


Very good. I made the following changes: I only had ground beef, so I used 2 lb. Instead of ketchup on top, I used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. I was worried that the center wouldn't cook at the same time as the outside, so I shaped it into 2 long loaves in my oval crockpot, with about an inch of space in between them. I think this worked really well. I only had 3 hours, so I cooked it on high for a bit and then turned to low to finish. Overall, my family liked it very much, and it didn't heat up our kitchen (the main reason I have been avoiding making meatloaf for several months now). DD and DH said this was better than my regular meatloaf, and they have always loved that one.


This was a great recipe. My family enjoyed it and it was simple and easy to make. Since it was my first time making this, I did not change anything, and it turned out great. I did drain the drippings before adding the remaining ketchup and used that for the gravy we had on our mashed potatoes.
