Slow Cooker Meatloaf

To make Miss Faye’s Slow Cooker Meatloaf (a.k.a mama’s meatloaf)  (courtesy of the Coer’s family) you’ll need: 2 lbs ground beef (I’m using ground chuck because it was on sale), tomato soup, cream of mushroom soup, package dry onion soup mix, and one egg. Note: My eggs were a bit on the small side so I’m using two 🙂


Place meat, eggs, and onion soup mix in a large bowl.


Moosh it all up really good with your hands.

Cooking is not for the squeamish so just get on in there. Hands are washable! Besides, it often takes someone dealing with the messy side of things in order to be able to produce something lovely, such as dinner. There is a valuable life lesson in there that I could pull out and drive home for ya but I’m woefully lacking in caffeine today and seeing how busy Flat Christy was has gotten me flat tired!


After its all mixed up well, shape it into a loaf and place in bottom of slow cooker.

A loaf can be whatever shape you’re in the mood for. I was in a round mood today.


Pour can of cream of mushroom soup over it. I spread mine around a bit with the can.


Pour can of tomato soup over.


Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

(or high for four hours)

THIS WAS DELICIOUS, thank you Miss Faye!!!

It kind of had a Salisbury steak taste to it – family gobbled it up!

*If you want to be sneaky, you can mix in a quarter cup of ground flax seed with the meat to sneak in Omega 3 and fiber… 😉

  1. Hi Christy, I am wondering if I could leave out the mushroom soup – (milk allergy) and if so, would I need to substitute some other liquid? Thank you for sharing you awesome recipes!

  2. Christy, I love your Flat Christy idea! I am also from Brownwood, TX. You can imagine my surprise when reading and saw that Flat Christy was in Brownwood! This is such an awesome way to learn about other readers. We should have all had a party. Lol

  3. Did I miss something in this recipe? I didn’t see any filler(bread crumbs, cracker crumbs or panko crumbs)..seems like there is a lot of liquids(soups).

  4. Hi, Christy! This is what is for supper this evening. Is Flat Christy still visiting people’s home? Maybe she would like to visit the Windy City (Chicago) while we are stationed here. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this and other meals with your Southern Plate Family. ♥


  5. Dear Christy, I do not like mushrooms at all. Is there something else that I could substitute in this recipe for the cream of mushroom soup? Thanks!
