While cleaning the house today I made a turkey meat loaf in the crock pop. I did the water bath thing and whenever I walked by and saw any dripping I poured them into the base and away from the meatloaf. It turned out good.

Chef Meg sad to make it in the pan and use a water bath in the bottom of the pan. However I like the idea of the drippings coming away from the meat loaf. I have never seen the meat loaf thing you are talking about. I will have to research it.

I've never put water in the bottom of my crock pot when I cook meat loaf this way. I forgot to say that I use the low temperature setting and I cook the meatloaf for 4 to 6 hours, usually closer to 4. Most of the time it turns out pretty well. Hopefully that pan will still be there tomorrow. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Thanks for the detail.
Do you put water in the bottom of your crock so the fat doesn't burn? I saw one of those pans on a clearance shelf at the grocery store yesterday. I was thinking about it but did not get it. Maybe I will go back and see if it is still there....

I don't use the bottom of the meatloaf pan, just the insert that's supposed to hang in it when you use it in the oven. I never cook in my oven (heats up my apartment too much) but when I saw this thing advertised on TV it looked like a great idea to me. I'm not sure whether my crock pot is a 4 quart or a 6 quart but it's just the right size for using this thing. My crock pot is an oval and I set the insert thing so that it hangs from the edges at the two farthest sides of the oval. Then I put the lid on and use the clips to hold the lid down because it won't be tightly sealed if I don't use the clips/clamps/levers/whatever they're called to hold the lid down. I love meatloaf but I quit making it for a long time because I really hate the soggy mess it so often becomes.

There was much rejoicing!

Hi Val. How are you doing? Do you use the bottom of that meatloaf pan as well or just the insert and the fat just drips down into the bottom of your crock pot. I never make meatloaf because I hate the soggy, fatty mess at the bottom of the loaf pan and I am not always available to suck up the fat into a baster to get rid of it.....

I've made meat loaf in my crock pot many times. The only problem is that if I just put it in the bottom of the crock pot, the bottom of the loaf is likely to come out pretty soggy. I've never done the water bath thing that is mentioned here but I have found something that works pretty well for me and keeps the bottom of the meat loaf from getting soggy. I got this thing called (I think) Perfect Meatloaf, something like that. It's meant for cooking meatloaf in the oven but I don't cook in my oven so I use it in my crock pot. It's a meat loaf pan that has an insert which keeps the meat loaf about half an inch from the bottom of the pan and has holes for juices to drip down through. My crock pot is just the right size for me to hang this insert from the top of the pot and this has worked okay for me, though I think I'm going to take a look at Chef Meg's recipe with the water bath deal.

There was much rejoicing!

I've made meatloaf in the crockpot, but I didn't use the water bath. I just put my loaf pan in my crockpot.

Chef Meg had a slower cooker meatloaf recipe. It says to put the meatloaf in a glass dish and make a water bath in the bottom of the crockpot. Has anyone every done this. I want to try my normal meatloaf recipe but my large crockpot runs hot if there is not enough in it. I guess I will have to try this on the weekend when I am hope to observe it. Or make it on my lunch that way it does not overcook.
