Fall Menu Recipe: Magic Meatloaf

Any decent fall menu plan wouldn't be complete without at least one meatloaf recipe. Meatloaf and mashed potatoes have been known as everyday comfort foods for many years. Here's a crockpot recipe for meatloaf so you can avoid the oven during those still "warm" days of autumn.

Magic Meatloaf

2 lbs. ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. green pepper, chopped
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 c. milk
1 c. saltine cracker crumbs
.87 oz. pkg. brown gravy mix
1 1/2 tsp. salt
6-8 new red skin potatoes

Mix all ingredients except potatoes in a large bowl. Mix well and form into a loaf.  Place in a lightly greased slow cooker.  Arrange potatoes around the meatloaf. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 3-5 hours.  Serves 4-6 people.

I've made meatloaf in the crockpot several times but never with this recipe so it will be a new one for me!
