Here's a recipe for what's called Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf. That sounds promising, doesn't it? It's super simple to prepare, too. It's one of those life-simplifying meals that cooks itself while you get everything else in your busy life done. Or while sledding! If it's still winter where you are, this is a great snow day dinner.

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf via Taste of Home

Ingredients:

2 eggs

3/4 cup milk

2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs

2 teaspoons dried minced onion

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage

1-1/2 pounds ground beef

1/4 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well (mixture will be moist). Shape into a round loaf; place in a five quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for five to six hours or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°.

In a small bowl, whisk the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Spoon over the meat loaf. Cook 15 minutes longer or until heated through. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 6 servings.
