Cooktop Cove: The best slow cooker old fashioned meatloaf ever
By Robin Donovan
Slow cooker meatloaf is a dream come true. With only a few minutes needed to put it together, you can set the slow cooker up in the morning before work and come home to a flavorful meatloaf, hot and ready to eat. The slow cooker keeps the meat around the edges from becoming overcooked and dry, and the whole thing comes out perfectly cooked.
You can even cook potatoes in the same pot at the same time to find an even better meal at home. Wrap potatoes in foil and set them in the slow cooker on top of the meatloaf. They’ll come out perfectly tender.
