A fan on Facebook a few weeks ago mentioned that she was having Slow Cooker Meatloaf, I immediately thought that sounded delicious. Meatloaf normally takes quite a while in the oven, so what better way to cook it and have it ready for dinner time!
I would recommend using lean ground beef if you do not you need to use a slotted spoon to take out of the slow cooker to avoid all the grease.
The nutritional breakdown for this recipes comes from MyFitnessPal.com and it is a rough estimate based on the ingredients you use.
Assuming your meatloaf makes 8 servings you will be eating 1 serving with 275 Calories, 12g of Fat, 15g Carbs, and 27g Protein.
Slow Cooker Meatloaf
- 2 Lbs Lean Ground Beef
- 4 Egg Whites
- 1 Cup Plain Dry Oats or certified gluten free oats
- 1 16 oz Jar of Pasta Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1/4 Cup White Onion Chopped
In a large bowl combine the ground beef, egg whites, oats, and form your loaf to fit the size of the slow cooker.
Spray the slow cooker with nonstick spray, then place the loaf in. Pour 1/2 of the pasta sauce over the top of the loaf and sprinkle with brown sugar and chopped onion.
Let this cook for 8 hours on low. I served it topped with the additional pasta sauce.
