This slow cooker meatloaf turned out so moist, and is pretty much fool-proof! I don’t understand why some people hate meatloaf, were they fed awful meatloaf as a kid? My mom used to make the best meatloaf, I wish I still lived at home and had my meals made for me!
I finally found a recipe that is as moist and tender as my mom’s meatloaf and I had to share it with you. This slow cooker meatloaf is my new favorite comfort food, I’m going to put it on my weekly meal list every week. I served this meatloaf with smashed cream cheese red potatoes, and a green salad. I know you will enjoy this meatloaf as much as my family and I do!
