This meatloaf includes potatoes, an easy one-pot meal from the slow cooker.


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 cup cracker crumbs or fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 to 8 small potatoes, halved or quartered


In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except potatoes. Shape into a loaf and place in Crock Pot. Arrange the potatoes around the meatloaf. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours.
Serves 6.

A Few Meatloaf-Making Tips
  • For more flavor and a juicier meatloaf, add about 1/4 cup of tomato juice, wine, or broth for each pound of meat.
  • Bake in muffin tins or mini-loaf pans for individual servings.
  • Use leftovers sliced in sandwiches or crumbled in sauces or chili.
  • Replace some of the liquid in the recipe with red wine or dark beer.
  • Add a cup of grated or shredded cheese to the meatloaf and top with more cheese about 10 minutes before it's done.

    easy & very good, Member Dewlanna

    My husband says this must not really be meatloaf because he doesn't like meatloaf and he loved this! My often picky son had seconds. I made one change, I left out the green pepper & onion and replaced them with about 1 1/2 cups of diced cooked carrots. Mr. Picky doesn't like pieces of onion in things, but I did add some onion powder with the seasonings. A great make-ahead meal.
