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.

A friend shared this recipe from Chef In Training with me. I don't like sausage in my meatloaf so I do all beef. It works either way.

  • 3 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 lb. sausage
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 packet dry powdered ranch mix
  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce, plus more for topping after it is cooked
  • ½ medium onion, chopped finely
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic

  1. In a large bowl, mix beef, sausage, bread crumbs, eggs, ranch packet, ¼ cup of BBQ sauce, onion, salt and garlic together by hand in large bowl.
  2. Add to slow cooker and form into a loaf shape.
  3. Add desired amount of BBQ sauce on top of loaf to glaze and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
  4. Once cooked and ready to serve, top with more BBQ sauce if needed.
