I realize Father’s day was not exactly recently, but better late than never! When my step-dad asked for cheesecake for a Father’s day treat, I took to the blogs. While I’m not always great about posting on my own little blog, I’m really good about reading other food blogs. I found this recipe for Turtle Cheesecake and the pictures looked too good for me not to give it a shot. Mine is not as pretty, but it sure was good!
Even though I did the cooking on this, Patricia gave me the recipe so I have to credit her for this one. This meatloaf has lots of flavor and it is soo moist. Since it’s a Patricia recipe, my measurements aren’t exact, I just eyeball it, so much of the list below is a guesstimate.
Yum! Thanks Patricia!
Slow Cooker Meatloaf
1 & 1/2 lbs of ground meat. I like to use a beef/pork mix they sell as Meatloaf mix. I think Patricia uses ground turkey. Whatever you prefer
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped or through the press
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can of mushrooms
salt & pepper
seasonings if you like. I love Garlic & Herb Mrs. Dash.
Havarti cheese,shredded, about half a chunk (I like to experiment and get different kinds with chives or herbs or whatever)
Mix the all ingredients – except the cheese – until combined. Divide mixture into two sections. Place one section in the slow cooker to cover the bottom. Make the sides a little higher than the middle. Place the cheese in the indent in the center of the meat. Cover with the remaining portion of meat mixture. Try to press the sides together a bit so all the cheese doesn’t all leak out when this cooks. Set the cooker on low for about 4 hours, until no longer pink in the middle. About 10 min before serving I put additional cheese on top so it’s all melty.
