MomLid's Meatloaf

One of my husband's favorite meals is meatloaf. It's such a simple comfort food, especially in colder weather. Discovering that I can make an excellent meatloaf in the crockpot means that we can even make it in warm weather without heating up th kitchen. I took a little from here & a little from there to make this my own! Not necessarily pretty, but beautiful to eat. MOMLID'S MEATLOAF! OVEN VERION: 1-1/2 lbs ground beef 1/2 lb ground pork 2/3 cups bread crumbs 1 envelope onion soup mix 1 tsp dried thyme 2 cloves garlic,chopped 2 ribs celery with leaves, finely chopped. 1/4 red onion chopped (optional) 2 t prepared mustard 2 t Worchestershire sauce 1/4 cup milk 1. Mix all together thoroughly - I totally advocate using your hands to moosh everthing together! (remove rings first or use gloves) 2. Form into a loaf in a pan sprayed with cooking spray. 3. Top with glaze: 1/2 cup ketchup & 1/4 cup brown sugar mixed 4. Cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven, let sit 10-15 minutes before slicing CROCKPOT VERSION:
1. Form into a loaf and place on foil in crockpot. 2. Place the cover on your slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours (until meat thermometer reads 160) Note: Cooking times are just a guideline. Slow cookers cook differently depending on size and make/model. It is recommended that you test times in your slow cooker for all new recipes.
