Crockpot Meatloaf Recipe

Crockpot Meatloaf

Stephanie Gallagher
This Crockpot meatloaf recipe is the perfect make-ahead meal. I've found that slow cooker helps the meatloaf retain more moisture than baked meatloaf, so I can use leaner cuts of ground beef or turkey for this recipe without having to worry about it drying out.

Serve this easy meatloaf with twice baked potatoes or scalloped potatoes and fresh green beans with orange zest.

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup ketchup, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (uncooked)
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard


  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots and celery. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add garlic and cook another minute. Stir in 1/2 cup of the ketchup. Remove from heat.

  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add oatmeal, ground beef, ground turkey, salt and pepper.

  4. Add ketchup mixture. Mix well.

  5. Shape into a loaf and place in the Crockpot stoneware.

  6. Whisk together Dijon mustard and remaining ketchup. Spoon over meatloaf.

  7. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4 hours.
