This Slow Cooker Luau Meatloaf is a fun (and healthy twist) on a favorite comfort food. It will quickly become one of your favorite easy crock pot recipes.
We don’t do meatloaf in our house a lot because it tends to be just a chunk of meat which I’m not a huge fan of. And although the traditional meatloaf is fantastic comfort food sometimes it’s nice to shake things up a bit. My go to version is made with ground turkey, veggies, and even pineapple!
Now, usually I make this in the oven but in California apparently fall is taking it’s sweet time to arrive. So I decided to try it out in the slow cooker. My slow cooker is in high demand over the summer and often even during the winter. And I love that I can cook a variety of meats and make lots of different kinds of meals like Orange and Lemon Turkey, Hungarian Goulash, or Sticky Pineapple Chicken. The best part is it’s ready to go when I get home.
So into the slow cooker my meatloaf went and it came out amazingly moist. It did kind of fall apart as I tried to cut a piece out but honestly nobody in my family seemed to mind anyways.
