A really easy recipe for meatloaf that anyone could pull off. For a spicier meatloaf, use chili sauce or even salsa in place of the ketchup.

After seeing many of the reviews had the same general complaints: too spicy too dry & some saying too bland... I decided to remidy all of these issues by adding one small can of cream of mushroom soup to prevent dryness one cup of italian bread crumbs for added texture & one half of a cup of brown sugar sprinkled on top for to counteract spicyness. I cooked for exactly 5 hours on high & the results were spectacular. Definately a "do - again". Read More

Something must have gone horribly wrong when I cooked this because it came out so bad...I cooked it the recommended time but it was SO DRY and the taste and texture was just awful. Too afraid to try again....sorry. Read More

Best meatloaf my husband has ever made!There wasn't even any left over for sandwiches! The taste and texture was suberb! Only change he made was to add bread crumbs because he always does and was afraid it might not stay together. This will be a regular in our home for sure! Read More

This turned out really well. I used a whole envelope of onion soup mix (my husband really likes the stuff). Easy to do. Read More

For convenience it's a decent meatloaf. I cooked mine for about 4 hours on high. I used 3 T ketchup 2 T A1 sauce a few dashes of onion salt and some Italian bread crumbs. The consistency is great for making sandwiches. I would probably use even less A1 sauce if I made it again. The crock did have a lot of grease in the bottom (I think my meat was 85/15) so cooking it with raw potatoes on the bottom (to soak up the grease) might be an interesting twist next time. Read More

I am not impressed. My hubby ate it but after a few bites I was done. The steak seasoning has a strong and spicy flavor that is uncharacteristic of meatloaf. It isn't a good combo. I like the idea of meatloaf in the crockpot. I will try it again but with my standard meat loaf recipe. Read More

Very yummy and so quick. I mix the ingredients together in a freezer bag for cleanliness and ease. I have also cooked this in the oven at 200 degree celcius for 30min in a muffin tin. It's even easier to drain the fat this way too. Will be making this many times. Read More

This was so bad and way to spicy. The three TBSP of steak seasoning was way to much. It was very dry and crumbly even with the cheese in the middle version.Will never do it again..... Read More

The flavor was okay but the meatloaf was dry and had a crumbly texture. I don't intend on making this again. Read More
