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!
*Amanda sometimes mixes in a quarter cup of ground flax seed with the meat to sneak in Omega 3 and fiber… don’t tell her kids!
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are that guy who’ll decide where to go!
