Crock Pot Meatloaf

I work long days, 4 days a week. There is something so nice about coming home from work to find dinner has been made. The crock pot insures that I can have this luxury. Yesterday morning I ran some errands and picked up some ground beef. Not sure what I was going to put in the crock pot. It was cold outside with a chance of rain and Meatloaf popped in my head.

Crock pot Meatloaf

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
a few shakes Lawry's Garlic Salt
a couple shakes ground red pepper
1 tsp Cajun spice seasoning
2 diced green onions
1 cup crushed seasoned croutons

3 Potatoes cut in thirds
1 cup carrot pieces

Mix the above ingredients together and shape meat into a loaf. Place in the bottom middle of the crock pot. Add potatoes and carrots to the side of loaf. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

You can glaze the top of meatloaf with a mix of ketchup or barbecue sauce mixed with brown sugar if you would like for 15 minutes with the crock pot set on high.
