  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup diced white onion
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce I use sweet baby rays
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 25 saltine crackers
  • 2 lbs. 10% fat ground beef
  • 8 slices cooked and crumbled bacon
  • For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 8 slices cooked and crumbled bacon


  • In a large bowl, add the eggs, onion, barbecue sauce, milk, onion powder, salt and pepper. Crush the saltine crackers in next and mix this all together with clean hands.
  • Add the ground beef and cooked bacon in next, only mixing everything until it just comes together.
  • Spray a 6-quart slow cooker with non-stick spray, and shape the meat in to loaf shape in the slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours, without opening the lid while during the cooking time. Scoop out the fat and discard. Top the meatloaf with the additional barbecue sauce and crumbled bacon.
  • Serve and Enjoy.



If you want to use something other than saltines (such as oatmeal or panko bread crumbs), the amount of saltines crushed is 1 1/4 cups.
