Comfort Food: Barbecued Meatloaf

There’s more than one version of barbecued meatloaf, and I believe this one is from a very old version of a Betty Crocker Slow Cooker Cookbook. The last time we visited North Carolina, my mother-in-law served it for supper and shared the recipe with me.  Everybody loved it, even my picky kids! I have since made it at home, but the kids swear Grandma’s is better—go figure! Anyway, this is very easy to throw together, it tastes great, and it’ll remind you of one of your mother’s home cooked meals. Enjoy!

Barbecued Meatloaf

2 lb. ground chuck or lean ground beef
½ cup uncooked oats (quick or old fashioned)
½ cup dry bread crumbs
2 T nonfat dry milk
½ cup water
½ cup smoky barbecue sauce
2 eggs
1 t salt
¼ t pepper
1 small onion chopped
6 potatoes, cut up

In large bowl, mix all ingredients except potatoes. Shape meat mixture into a loaf. Place potatoes in bottom of Crock-Pot. Top potatoes with meatloaf. Cover and cook on LOW 8-10 hours. Makes six servings.

I never liked meatloaf as a kid, but now I love it! How about you, are you a meatloaf fan?

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Crock-pot? Interesting. I would have thought a crockpot is too moist but now I'm smacking my lips.

My mother made it quite similar to this. I still like it, though these days I'll generally have it in more of a sandwich form from the Italian deli I go to.
