Notes

  • You can prep this the night before. Shape the meatloaf and place it in the crock pot with vegetable in advance. Refrigerate for up to 12 hours. 
  • Avoid over mixing your meat as it results in a tougher meatloaf. Mix the ingredients until they have just combined. 
  • Sprinkle a little brown sugar in the ketchup for a sweeter glaze.
  • Broil the meatloaf after cooking it to get the glaze super stick and delicious. 
  • Leftovers are good for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • You can also freezer slices of meatloaf in airtight containers for up to 2 months. 
  • The internal temperature of the meatloaf should be 160 degrees F when cooked through.
  • Got leftovers? Make a delicious meatloaf sandwich. Simply toast a hearty bread and warm up your meatloaf to be the sandwich filling.
Can I make it in the oven instead?
Yes! Prepare it and then instead of placing in your crock pot place it in a loaf pan. Brush ketchup mixture on top and place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for about 55 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the middle. 
You could also shape into a loaf and place on a baking sheet with aluminum foil, but I feel that the loaf pan provides a more moist meatloaf. 
Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
Can I substitute the ground turkey for ground beef?
Yes, you can! It will be great either way, just pick which one you prefer. We recommend using a 90% lean ground beef if you use beef.
