This is a nice basic meatloaf recipe that really is rather foolproof. It's got lots of green pepper and onion, which I prefer. There's a discrepancy, though, between the video and the written directions. The video calls for the meatloaf to be cooked on High for 6 to 8 hours, while the written instructions call for Low for 6 to 8 hours or High for 3 to 4. I would think that the written instructions are the correct ones for making a meatloaf. If you follow the video instructions, you'll have a brick.

It never dawned on me to make meatloaf in a crock pot...what a great idea! Is this a burger version and did you have any issues with an overage of hamburger grease? I've never seen meatloaf made with both ketchup and mustard before. Personally, I've always preferred to use tomato sauce instead of the norm...and I remember my grandmother used grape jelly. So many different versions to try, all no doubt just as good as the other.

Tried this recipe? What did you think?
