It works beautifully, by the way!
1lb ground beef
1/2 box Stovetop dressing(or breadcrumbs or crackers plus thyme, oregano, garlic, whatever)
1 onion, chopped
a shake of ground mustard
several splashes of worcestershire
Mix all of this together in a bowl, then form into a loaf. Cook on low in the slow cooker until ready to serve.
Vince and I took the two littlest kids to the zoo, so I startted this around 830am. At around noon, I squeezed ketchup on top of the loaf, then sprinkled on some brown sugar. I let this cook on low until 530pm. I'm certain it was ready before that time, but that's when I was ready to serve dinner, and the meatloaf was fantastic! It was browned just as it would have been if cooked in the oven, and moist and tasty! I think I love my slow cooker so much because I've never overcooked anything in the slow cooker...always great, even if you are busy all day with kids and chores!
