- Thanks so much to all who have replied. I shall have plenty to try over the
next few weeks!
Some of the recipes look as if they would be better served hot - and I
particularly want the one I make for tomorrow to be served cold. (BTW: any
ideas for a cold sauce?)
Will let you know how it turns out!!

- I would think that any meat loaf recipe would work-I do crockpot meat loaf frequently-unfortunately I don't have a recipe-I tend to throw in whatever I have on hand. Usually ground meat, eggs, worsteshire sauce (I can't spell it either) poultry seasoning, onions, (or if you can get picsweet seasoning blend-peppers, onions, celery, and parsley already chopped up and frozen) garlic powder and any other spices in the house that strike my fancy. My twist for a healthier version of meatloaf is instead of cracker crumbs or bread crumbs I like to use shredded cabbage (I cheat-the bought slaw mix works great) If I don't have the slaw mix I use either oatmeal or a box of stuffing mix with the seasoning packet. Crushed cornflakes work ok too-but my picky husband doesn't like to eat healthy, so using the slaw mix is a real help and it really gives it a good flavor. If you can avoid it, don't add your topping (tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, chopped tomatoes or uggh-if you must, ketchup) untill the last 15-30 minutes of cooking-makes cleaning the crockpot much easier.
