Crock Pot Meatloaf

  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 medium onion, peeled
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow or orange bell pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  •  1 Tbsp minced wet garlic
  •  1 tsp ground mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce no salt added (or one large can)
  •  Optional- Spinach, corn, diced carrots, diced tomatoes, etc.
  • Directions

    1. Spray a crock pot well with cooking spray or use a liner, turn to high

    2. Combine all ingredients except tomato sauce, place meat mixture into crock pot and press lightly to flatten and form it to the crock pot

    3. Cook on high for 5-6 hours, or low for 6-8 check middle to see if it is still pink, when very little pink remains, carefully drain any grease from the crock pot without letting the meat loaf slide out.  Use a very large spatula to hold the loaf in place.  You must do this step when very little pink remains or it will fall apart and into the sink

    4.  Pour sauce over the top and cook until no pink remains

    Tip- if it starts to dry out after you drain the grease, add sauce to the top as it cooks, but save plenty to use in the last step
