Slow-Cooker Meat Loaf with Shiitake Mushrooms

Because no evaporation takes place, the crockpot makes an especially moist and tender meat loaf. The mushrooms add moisture as well.

Cooking Light OCTOBER 2003

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 4 ounces)

Ingredients

  • 2 (1-ounce) slices whole wheat bread
  • 3/4 pound ground round
  • 3/4 pound ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup grated fresh onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

Preparation

Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 10 times or until crumbs measure 1 1/3 cups. Combine the crumbs, beef, and next 7 ingredients (beef through garlic) in a large bowl, and shape meat mixture into a 9 x 6-inch loaf. Place loaf in an electric slow cooker.

Combine ketchup, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a fork. Spread ketchup mixture evenly over top of loaf. Cover with lid; cook on LOW for 5 hours.
