We call this recipe our Simply the Best Slow Cooker Meatloaf recipe because it keeps dinner simple and delicious. Unlike many other meatloaf recipes, this one keeps the ingredient count low without sacrificing flavor. 

Inspired by Cracker Barrel's addicting meatloaf recipe, we aimed to duplicate the flavor palate while taking some slow cooker-inspired liberties of our own. Make this for the family. It's sure to please!

  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup frozen biscuits, grated

  1. Grate the frozen biscuits through the large end of a cheese grater. Then combine all of the ingredients, except for the ketchup, in a large bowl. Shape the combined ingredients into a loaf.

  3. Cook meatloaf on high for 1 hour. Then, reduce heat to low and cook for another 3-4 hours.
