Recipe: All American Meatloaf Sandwich – Jeff Mauro

Crock Pot Meatloaf Sandwich I have been slacking! It’s been a busy three weeks. My sister graduated with her masters in Speech Pathology! Congratulations Naggle McTaggle. You are officially more educated (but not more genius) than I.

Meatloaf Meatloaf is not for the faint of heart. I hadn’t given any consideration as to how the meat got mixed, but had I realized it involved my hands, I would have skipped this recipe altogether. Rule #2 of Slow Liz’s Slow Cooker Challenge? I don’t touch raw meat!

I didn’t have any latex gloves on hand, so I made my own with Saran Wrap.

Oh yeah, this recipe called for oyster crackers instead of bread crumbs. It was a great recipe that called for a lot of other things as well, but it didn’t call for unplugging the crockpot (it actually didn’t call for a crockpot at all – I improvised). Anyway, between the hours of two and four, no cooking happened. This meant my glorious early dinner was served very very late.

Moral of the Meal: I will do anything for Meatloaf, but I won’t do it in a crockpot.
