This recipe is almost identical to the one I use:

Besides the milk. I've never used milk in my meatloaf. What does it do to it?



Also... is it better in the crockpot? It takes 3 hours to cook... versus about 70 minutes in the oven. Just wondering if it's worth it :lol:

The milk helps with moisture. I've always used milk :D

So it's like super juicy? LOL. Mine are always pretty wet after using the eggs and Worcestershire sauce. So I just omitted the milk because I felt like it'd be TOO wet.

I feel like it'd be mushy lol. IDK about the milk. I make meatloaf muffins because they cook in 35 minutes and I only use like 4 ingredients :lol:

I'm just worried it'll come out.... soggy? Like the outer part won't be crisp like it is in the oven.

I use a splash of milk, 2 eggs, 2lb meat and throw a bunch of spices together (or just use a dry french onion soup packet if I'm lazy) pop it in the oven at 400 for an hour...everyone loves it :)
