It is a week of Crock Pot meals! And, no, I’m not complaining either because I love recipes in the slow cooker!

This Crock Pot meat loaf recipe is what you eat when you want an easy meal that will be ready after a long day’s work.

Um, let’s talk about my meat loaf recipe…in the crock pot…

  • First, it is a serious dish that is mouthwatering.
  • Second, it has a little sage for extra flavor–seriously, it gives it the right kick in the pants that any  meat loaf needs.
  • Third, it’s EASY!
  • Fourth, the sauce is to die for! Pinky swear (yes, I say that a lot, but it’s true)!
  • Fifth, it will taste like you’ve been cooking all day (well, technically the Crock Pot has but…shhhh…no need to tell anyone)!
