Crockpot Meatloaf and Potatoes

Loved this dish.  So easy, so quick, and not your typical crockpot meal.  I was a little worried about it cooking the meatloaf all the way through but it did and it was delicious.  Plus, I love that it used ground turkey.

Crockpot Meatloaf and Potatoes
Recipe from
2.5 pounds of ground turkey (or beef, if you prefer)
1 egg
3/4  cup smashed cornflakes (or bread crumbs, but I prefer corn flakes)
1 envelope of Lipton onion soup mix
2-3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt, pepper, paprika, garlic salt, Italian seasoning to taste.
Mix the ingredients well and form a “loaf” in the bottom of your crock pot.
Then, wash 5-6 small-medium potatoes, prick them with a knife or fork, and wrap them in foil.  Place them around the meatloaf.  Cook for 8-10 hours on low.  You do not need to add water, and wrapping the potatoes is optional (I just like them to have their own flavor at the end of the day).

S'mores in a Pan

We had these for a quick FHE treat the other night.  They were delicious and something that most of us would just have the ingredients sitting around in our pantry for.  Perfect last minute treat.
