    Slow Cooker Meat Loaf

    Source of Recipe

    JoAnna M. Lund

    Recipe Introduction

    Every diner and truckstop features this American standby, so I knew I needed to find a way to make it using a slow cooker. It's a little untraditional, I admit it, but the comforting feeling is there in every bite.
    Serves 8
    *Freezes Well

    List of Ingredients

    • 24 ounces extra lean ground turkey or beef
    • 1 cup finely chopped onion
    • 4 slices reduced-calorie white bread, torn into small pieces
    • 2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
    • 1 tablespoon pourable Splenda
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    • 1 cup (one 8-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce*


    1. Spray a slow cooker container with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, onion, bread peices, mustard, and 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Mix well to combine. Form into a large ball. Place in prepared slow cooker container. Stir in Splenda and parsley flakes into remaining 1/2 cup tomato sauce and spoon mixture evenly over meat loaf. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Divide into 8 servings. When serving, evenly spoon sauce over top.
