Bacon Ranch Meatloaf: The Way To Do Meatloaf Right

Is there any food you can’t make in the slow cooker anymore?

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 large Eggland’s Best egg
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup Heinz ketchup
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. oil
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet peppers
1 small onion, diced
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
3 tsp. powdered ranch seasoning
Salt and pepper
7 slices Hormel bacon
2 lbs potatoes, chopped very small (optional)

Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add oil, and when hot, stir in onion, carrot, peppers, and celery. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened.
Combine all ingredients except bacon and potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Mix until JUST combined. Mixing too much will result in tough meat.
If using potatoes, add them to the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour meat over top and form into a rectangular shape using your hands. Cover meatloaf with bacon and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.
Carefully move meatloaf to a baking sheet and broil in oven until desired bacon-crispiness is met!
