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.

MEAT LOAF WITH POTATOES

1 1/2 lbs ground beef

1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 slices bread, crumbled
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp chopped green bell pepper
2 tbsp chopped celery
4-6 medium to large potatoes, quartered
1 to 2 tbsp butter, melted (enough to coat potatoes)
ketchup
2 or 3 bell pepper rings for garnish, if desired

Mix the egg, milk, salt, and bread crumbs; allow to soften.  Thoroughly combine the mixture ground beef, bell pepper, and onion.  Shape into a loaf and place in slow cooker or crockpot.   Melt the butter and toss potatoes to coat.  Arrange the potatoes around the meatloaf.  Top the meatloaf with ketchup and two or three bell pepper rings, if desired.  Cover and cook on high from 45 minutes to an hour.  Turn heat setting to low and cook approximately 8 hours.
