WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

ALL-AMERICAN TURKEY MEATLOAF

1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey (read label to be sure you are getting lean - no skin)
2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
8 slices American cheese, cut into 2 strips each
2 tbsp tomato paste

In a large mixing bowl, using your hands, combine the turkey, bread crumbs, ketchup, onion, eggs, salt and pepper.  Shape half the mixture into a loaf and top half the cheese strips.  Make the remaining meat into a loaf and top the cheese, sealing the two loaves together to seal in the cheese.  Place meatloaf in the slow cooker.  Spread  tomato paste over the top of the meatloaf and top it with the remaining slices of cheese.

Place cover on cooker and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.

Yield: 6 servings
