One Dish Crock Pot Dinners

Meatloaf Dinner

For easy clean up, line crock pot with a slow cooker cooking bag. Place 2 pounds washed baby carrots in bottom of crock. Prepare your favorite meatloaf recipe using 2 pounds of meat. Shape meat into a round loaf smaller in diameter than the crock pot. Place meatloaf on top carrots (for a tasty meatloaf recipe, see below). Scrub 6-8 medium potatoes and place between meatloaf and crock pot. If desired, top meatloaf with barbecue sauce or 1/3 cup ketchup mixed with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Cover and cook on high 1 hour, reduce heat to low and cook 8-10 hours.

* Meatloaf recipe: Mix well 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 pound lean sausage, 2 tablespoons dried onion, 2 cloves crushed garlic, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons bouillon granules, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers, 2 eggs, and 1/4 cup milk.

Roast Pork Loin and Baked Sweet Potatoes

Scrub 4-5 evenly shaped yams or sweet potatoes. Wrap in foil. Place sweet potatoes in bottom of crock pot (do not add water to crock pot). Rub a 2-3 pound pork loin (or other roast) with 1 tablespoon crushed garlic. Place in a roasting bag. Sprinkle roast with 1 envelop dry onion soup mix. Tie roasting bag closed, vent top and place on top sweet potatoes. Cover, cook on high 1 hour, reduce heat to low and cook 8-10 hours. NOTE: Pork roast is tasty with gravy the first night; shred leftovers and moisten with barbecue sauce for sandwiches the second day.
