I have mention before (here and here) that in Arizona, you DO NOT want to use your oven in the summer. Well, you wish you could, but it’s just too dang hot.
Every time I’ve made meatloaf, I use the oven. A Year of Slow Cooking has great recipes for your crockpot. I noticed that she makes her meatloaf recipe in the crockpot, so I thought I would try my meatloaf recipe in the crockpot. I was a little nervous, I must admit, but it really turned out delicious! You can use your own meatloaf recipe, or you can check out the recipe at A Year of Slow Cooking, or you can try mine :)
What you will need:
- 2 lbs of ground turkey meat (feeds up to 4 people)
- 1/4 cup chopped onions (my husband is allergic to onions, so I use onion powder)
- 1 garlic clover chopped (or garlic powder)
- 3/4 cup italian bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh spinach (not frozen)
- celery salt, salt and pepper (to your liking)
- egg (I never use the egg and it turns out perfect)
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp lime juice
What to do:
- In a medium mix bowl, mix together turkey meat, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, spinach, salt, pepper, celery salt, and egg (if you choose to use one).
- Spray your 4 quart crockpot with cooking spray and set to high.
- Shape meat mixture into a loaf and place in crockpot.
- In a small mixing bowl, mix together ketchup, soy sauce, lime juice, and pepper.
- Spread ketchup mixture over the top of your meatloaf
- Cover with lid and cook on high for 2 hours.
We had baby reds and roasted garlic mashed potatoes and steamed baby carrots with our Turkey and Spinach Meatloaf. Yum!
