Food Friday: Meatloaf

This is an easy recipe for the crockpot.  Since we are a small family, I usually cut the recipe by 1/3.  When I do this, I use 1 lb beef and leave out the other half pound of meat (turkey), use 1 egg and 1 egg white, and cut all other ingredients by 1/3.  Also, my husband isn't a big liquid smoke fan so I usually leave it out.

(from Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly)

1/2 lb extra-lean ground beef
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
2 eggs
2/3 cup dry quick oats
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/2-1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp dry mustard
1 cup ketchup, divided

1. Mix beef, turkey, and chopped onion thoroughly.
2. Combine with eggs, oats, dry soup mix, liquid smoke, mustard, and all but 2 Tbsp of ketchup.
3. Shape into loaf and place in slow cooker sprayed with non-fat cooking spray.  Top with remaining ketchup.
4. Cover.  Cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 4-6 hours.

Serves 8
Ideal cooker size - 3 or 4 quarts
