Slow Cooker Saturday: Barbecue Meatloaf

It is Saturday. Woot.Woot.

You know what that means. Not having to get up and get ready for school. Hubby doesn't go to work. The house should gets a good cleaning. Errands. Basketball games. Basically a regular free-for-all.

Here on the blog that means another Slow Cooker Saturday.

Today I am sharing this recipe for Barbecue Meatloaf.

Say what!? Cooking a big ol' loaf of meat in the slow cooker? Say it ain't so!

I had some trepidation too people. Believe me I did.

However, man-oh-man!

I am not gonna lie. I enjoyed this meatloaf quite a bit.

This was such an easy meal to make. Mix all the ingredients. Put it into a slow cooker. Let it go. Enjoy the BBQ smell all day long in anticipation. Slather in more BBQ sauce. Serve with a simple side of veggies, since the meatloaf is a meal in of itself.

Bam. Done dinner done.

We had leftovers, not for a lack of enjoying, but more so because this makes A LOT of meat.

The next day those leftovers were used in making meatloaf sandwiches. While I passed, because this girl can only take so much meat so many days in a row, the menfolk, both of regular and of little variety enjoyed themselves a Meatloaf Sandwich.

I have really been enjoying this Slow Cooker Saturday. I said that at the beginning of all of this that I had not traditionally used my crock pot, except for a very few family favorites. I am not sure why, but I am glad that Slow Cooker Saturday has allowed me to expand my crock pot cooking. I even just bought a new slow cooker cookbook which I am excited to give a try. It is from the people at one of my favorite cooking shows. I already have several of the recipes marked.

Don't worry I will talk more about it soon.

I am sure you will enjoy this Barbecue Meatloaf as much as we did.

Printable Recipe

3 lbs ground beef
1 lb ground sausage
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
3 eggs
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1/2 medium onion, diced finely
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1/3 cup favorite BBQ sauce (we like Baby's Rays), +more for drizzling later

In a large bowl, mix the beef, sausage, bread crumbs, eggs, Ranch, onion, salt, and garlic powder all together by hand.

Add to your slow cooker and form the meat into a loaf shape.

Spread the 1/3 cup BBQ sauce over the top of the meatloaf.

Cook on low for 6 hours.

When it is done, remove it from the crock pot (there might be some residual liquid in the slow cooker) and place on a platter. Drizzle with more BBQ sauce.

Slice and serve.

Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

It's Slow Cooker Saturday woot woot! My other half detests ketchup, and most meat loafs are made with ketchup. I was so happy to read the ingredient list and do a little dance! I love your recipes because they're not the "usual" slow cooker ones I find or already have. Thank you for sharing!
