1/4 cup ketchup
8 small red potatoes
4-6 medium carrots, cut into 1 inch chunks
1. Beat together eggs and milk.

4. Spread top with ketchup.
5. Place carrots and potatoes around meatloaf.
6. Cover. Cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat and cook on low for 7-8 hours longer.
This is a recipe that comes straight from mom’s kitchen. Or at least it should have. This is something that my family would have eaten when I was growing up. It is a bonus meal because it includes veggies in the main dish so everything is made and done! So easy and so tasty. I didn’t know how my family would like this meal but my 3 year old had 3 huge helpings! WOW! By the way, she doesn’t eat. I am surprised that she is alive with how little she eats. So for her to ask for thirds is a BIG deal. The one thing that I would do different next time is to put the meatloaf on a rack. I don’t have one yet but I’m planning on getting one soon. That way all the grease would go to the bottom and it would be a little more healthy. 4 stars.
