Not sure meatloaf rates a "special occasion", but anyway, this was good and nice to have a slow cooker option for meatloaf. Agree with others that the mushrooms lend a nice touch and don't have to be chopped fine. Used 'Bella's 'cuz that's what the store had. Used panko because didn't want to fool with the food processor for such a small task. Thought it might be weird in the slow cooker, but didn't miss the oven variety at all. Used half ground venison/half ground pork, 'cuz that's how we roll. Was great to be able to set the cooker on, with CL's Balsamic Collard Greens in the other slow cooker, while we assisted with the prep for the mid-day meal at the local shelter. Came home, sliced garden tomatoes, and dinner was ready! Awesome!
