Not Your Mama's Meatloaf

Has it really been a WHOLE week since I've blogged????  My Marine hubby is away completing training in the field for the next month. So I have been quite busy keeping up with my little Marine at home! : )
Here is a picture of my sweet little boy looking out the window this morning. I don't know if he was looking for "Dada" or just thanking God for this beautiful day. All the same, it warms my heart to watch this little one . 

I've taken note of my wonderful new blog followers this past week. Welcome to you all and thank you for following!! :)

The other night before Rich left for training, I made a wonderful meatloaf. Now ordinarily, meatloaf is probably my husbands least favorite dish. But this recipe received a great big two thumbs up and a "you done good hunny" from my hubby! So, I thought I would pass this recipe along to all of you !

In my opinion, the BEST thing about this recipe is the fact that the meatloaf is cooked in a slow-cooker/Crock-Pot!! I love saving time and who could ask for more . . . a quick, homemade, delicious meal! Count me in!

 BBQ Crock Pot Meat Loaf Recipe

What You Will Need :
2 1/4 pounds ground beef

1/4 cup BBQ sauce ( We LOVE Sweet Baby Ray's) !!!
2 tablespoon brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup breadcrumbs or crushed crackers ( I used bread)

1 large onion (diced)

1/4 cup water

Note: Sometimes I add a 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese while I'm mixing.

What You Do
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Form into a meatloaf shape that will fit into your crock pot.

Cut a strip of foil and place under the meatloaf in crock pot.

Cut it long enough to cover the bottom and sides of meatloaf.

Place meat loaf in crock pot and top with an additional 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce
Cover and cook on low for approximately 8 hours.

Serve with fresh, hot roles and veggies!
