I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Easy Slow Cooker Meatloaf Dinner

Amazingly tender meatloaf that's anything but boring! And with the potatoes and carrots cooking along side it you've got a delicious hassle-free one pot meal. Actual hands on work is only about 20 minutes!

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp savory
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp celery seed
pinch of baking soda (to keep the meatloaf moist and tender)

1 1/2 lbs potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 - 1 1/2" chunks
1 lb carrots, thickly sliced

2 tbsps ketchup
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tsp worcestershire sauce

Mix everything from the ground beef to and including the pinch of baking soda, even getting your hands into it to make sure everything is well combined.

Form the meat into a loaf and place in the crock pot of the slow cooker. I used a 7 qt pot here.
Place the potatoes and carrots on either side of the loaf and season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover and cook on high for the first 30 minutes.

Then reduce heat to low and cook for 5 hours without lifting the lid. After 5 hours mix the glaze ingredients together and spread on top of the meatloaf. 

Cover and cook on high again for another 30 minutes.

Potatoes and carrots are now tender and the meatloaf perfectly glazed!

Let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.
