Easy Cheesy Meat Loaf
With the use of some common ingredients, this Easy Cheesy Meat Loaf will be ready in no time - easy as 1-2-3.
What You'll Need:
2 pounds ground round
1 cup ketchup, divided
1 (1-1/2-ounce) package meat loaf seasoning
cup fine, dry bread crumbs (store-bought)
2 large eggs
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
What To Do:
- Combine beef, 1/2 cup ketchup, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; shape mixture in a 5-inch by 7-1/2-inch loaf. Place loaf in a lightly greased 3-quart oval slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on HIGH setting 1 hour. Reduce heat to LOW setting, and cook 3 hours. Remove ceramic insert from cooker, and carefully pour grease off meat loaf; return insert to cooker.
- Stir together remaining 1/2 cup ketchup and the mustard in a small bowl; spread over meat loaf. Cover and cook on LOW setting 45 more minutes or until thermometer inserted into meat loaf registers 160 degrees. Remove meat loaf from slow cooker, and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
I found an oval slow cooker works best to accommodate the shape of the meat loaf.
