This crockpot meatloaf includes potatoes, which makes it a convenient one-pot meal. Add some thick-sliced carrots to the slow cooker along with the potatoes if you would like, or add extra onions, or cook the meatloaf and potatoes separately.

Spread the meatloaf with ketchup, chili sauce, or barbecue sauce just before it is ready, or top it with several thin slices of cheese and continue cooking until the cheese has melted.

  • For more flavor and a juicier meatloaf, add about 1/4 cup of tomato juice, wine, or broth for each pound of meat, or use a combination of 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef with about 1/2 pound of ground pork.
  • Bake in muffin tins or mini-loaf pans for individual servings.
  • Use leftovers sliced in sandwiches or crumbled in sauces or chili.
  • Replace some of the liquid in the recipe with red wine or dark beer.
  • Add a cup of grated or shredded cheese to the meatloaf and top with more cheese about 10 minutes before it's done.
