Loafin' At Home Making Meatloaf........
I got sprung from the hospital Sunday night, and have been recouperating at home since. I do have a Doctors' appt. today, so we'll see where that goes. I do believe the rest of the week will be at home (I hope!). I figured I might actually attempt something productive- so I made my Italian Herb Meatloaf in a Crock Pot! Ingredients are as follows 1-3/4lbs ground beef, 3/4lb Italian Sausage, 2 eggs, 1 cup fine breadcrumbs, 8oz tomato sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, 30 or so seeds of fennel, Italian seasoning blend, 1/4 cup worchester, Lawrys season salt to taste. Mix with hands til blended completely. Put in loaf pan, pack tightly. Place in oblong crock pot and cook for 6-8 hrs on low, draining excess grease or liquid occasionally. Doing it this way gives you a meatloaf that no one would guess was done in a (shudder!) crock pot! Thanks again to all you well wishers while I was in the hospital. Test results aren't back yet either, darn it!
P.S. As you can tell from that beatup old crockpot, this is about the only way we use it anymore(I Have other Crock Pots!)
