Day of Rest

 Gonna take a day off from blogging and rest. What an awesome way to set back and relax while supper cooks in the crock pot. My kids and I love making this recipe I found on I changed it up a little.  My baby boy and girl like to top with lots of ketchup.

Crock Pot Meatloaf
  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 quick cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 c. ketchup or barbecue sauce
  • 1 Med Onion (or a bundle of ramps)(optional)


Reserve 2 tablespoons ketchup or barbecue sauce. Combine beef, eggs, oats, soup mix and remaining ketchup. Shape into a round loaf for Crock Pot or oblong for oven. Put into Crock Pot. Top with remaining ketchup or just quirt some on top. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or on high 4 to 6 hours. Serves 8. This recipe can be doubled for larger meatloaf.
