This crockpot meatloaf is classic comfort food!  This slow cooker meatloaf recipe is so satisfying, budget-friendly, and tastes delicious with a side of mashed potatoes and vegetables!   I was inspired to make a meatloaf out of ground pork because I usually find ground pork at a local grocery store for under $2.00 a pound, thus making this a very budget-friendly meal option.

I love how you only need 1-2 dishes to make a meatloaf.  My goal is always to do as few dishes as possible.

Ingredients 

1 pound of ground pork

1 cup of Italian breadcrumbs

1/4 cup minced onion

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

One egg

Meatloaf Glaze 

3/4 cup of ketchup

1/4 cup of brown sugar

2-3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

Equipment needed 

slow cooker

meat thermometer

large bowl

If you can’t find ground pork, you can also substitute it with lean ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix ground pork, egg, parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and onion.
  2. Mix the ingredients for the meatloaf glaze in a separate smaller bowl.
  3. Spray your crockpot with cooking spray.
  4. Turn your meatloaf mixture into a loaf.  And place the meatloaf into your slow cooker.
  5. Spread the glaze on top of the meatloaf.
  6. Cook on low for 5 hours or on high for 3 hours.
  7. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the pork has an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  8. Slice your meatloaf into portions and serve.

Note: If you like, you can broil the meatloaf on a baking sheet in the oven for a few minutes to crisp up the outside a bit.

How to Store

Your meatloaf leftovers will make delicious sandwiches.  You can store the leftover meatloaf in an airtight container in your fridge for up to five days, or you can freeze it in an airtight container or a freezer bag for up to 3 months.  This is a great high-protein meal and is pure comfort food.
