slow cooker meatloaf

Slow Cooker Meatlof
this was definitely a first for me.  i've never made meatloaf before because from what i remembered, i don't like it.  decided to give it another try and wouldn't you know...i liked it!  maybe it was just my moms that i didn't like before.  sorry mom. :/
2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 sweet onion
bbq sauce
salt & pepper
italian seasoning
2 eggs
carrots and celery for flavor
season meat and add diced onion and mushroom.  mix in a little bbq sauce, i used sweet baby rays.  lightly beat 2 eggs and add to meat.  add breadcrumbs {i can't tell you how much to use because i forgot to pick some up from the store so i used leftover stuffing.  worked just as good}  mix all this together, i used my hands.  mold it into loaf form since you won't be using a loaf pan.  place in crock pot, cover top of loaf with ketchup and surround with carrots and celery.
cook on low for 6-8 hours or until done in center.
serve when ready.
this was so easy to make and turned out better than i expected!  hubbs loved it too, which is always a plus.  this serving size made a pretty large amount.  i would have probably been ok with 1 pound of ground beef rather than 2 for just the two of us.  (use 1 egg if using  1 lb of meat.)  luckily i had a lot of plans for leftovers.

i used rye bread, munster cheese, ketchup, mashed potatoes and a little bit of creamy horseradish.  i put some pepperoncinis on mine because i was craving them :)
meatloaf leftovers #2 on the menu for tomorrow.  you'll have to check back to see how different this meal will be!  using an ingredient i have never cooked with before, another first and pretty excited about it!

happy friday!
