  • 2 pounds Ground beef (tip: lean ground beef works best)
  • 1 small White onion (finely minced)
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 cup Bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ½ + ¼ cup Ketchup (divided)
  • ¼ cup Brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Mustard


  • Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl add ground beef, finely minced onion, eggs, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and ½ cup of ketchup.
  • Gently mix with hands and form into a loaf then place into the slow cooker.
  • Mix remaining ¼ cup of ketchup with brown sugar and mustard. Add this to the top of your meatloaf.
  • Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until meatloaf is cooked through. Once cooked through slice and serve.


  • Use a lean beef. when cooking your beef will release the fat and it could puddle at the bottom of your slow cooker. I always use lean beef to make sure this does not happen. I suggest 85/15.
  • Don't overmix! I also mix until just combined and then form my loaf. 
  • Make extra sauce for serving. My kids love the sauce so I usually will mix some up and heat it on the stovetop so we have extra when serving.
