This sounds like a really good meatloaf recipe and cooking it in the slow cooker would make what I consider to be a "winter" meal into one that I could make in summer. (and thereby make the hubby really happy) I usually use ground turkey to make meatloaf, but the addition of all the great spices and sauces would add a depth of flavor that could make it very tasty! I need to try this recipe soon.

Coming from a woman who has an oven that does not work efficiently, I can totally appreciate THIS recipe! I'd love to set it on low for three hours while I go do something more fun like shopping. I like to have scalloped potatoes on the side with meatloaf. I did not know that I should be letting my bread crumbs sit with the egg and milk for 5 minutes before mixing into the loaf mixture. Does this really make a difference in the outcome? Just wondered.

I never thought to make meatloaf in the slow cooker. You really do learn something new every day! I can't wait to try this recipe.

Love that you can make this in your slow cooker! I'm definitely going to have to test it out.

Slow Cooker MEATLOAF? What a game-changer! This is a great way to prevent the dryness that often occurs when cooking a meatloaf. Cooking it slowly seems like it would really lock in the moisture and make for a flavorful dish. Definitely putting this in my recipe box!

This recipe looks delicious! This meatloaf has a lot of different ingredients from my usual recipe. I am intrigued by the hot sauce, mustard, and ground pork. My recipe for meatloaf uses ground chuck, but no pork. I've always baked my meatloaf so I'm excited to try a slow cooker recipe.

Just looking and reading this recipe brings me right back to my childhood when my mam used to make this dinner. She always did this in an oven but I got a slow cooker off my parents for Christmas after buying my first house with my partner, trying to juggle house work, job, harder than I thought so popping something like this on for 3 to 4 hours sounds great to help get things done in between, thank you for the recipe.

How long would you have to cook the meatloaf to make a double recipe? I have a large family and need to feed eight of us at dinner. I would love to make a big batch of this and use the leftovers for lunch the following day. I have a six quart crock pot and I can put up to eight or ten pounds of meat in it at a time, but I have no idea how long to cook it to get it moist and done.
