CPT: Meat Loaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans/Brussel Sprouts and Apple Pie Bake [Video]

It's official. We've had our first accumulated snowfall. Things are getting cold outside. Luckily, inside... they're heating up! Crock-Pot Thursday videos are back this week featuring a flavorful Meatloaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes (that seemed to melt faster than the snow...) Then, Charlotte made a truly extraordinary creation: the Apple Pie Bake.


Meat Loaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans or Brussell Sprouts


  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 3 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup canned chicken stock or broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 2 extra-large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup ketchup


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan. Add the onions, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not brown. Off the heat, add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, onion mixture, bread crumbs, and eggs, and mix lightly with a fork. Don't mash or the meat loaf will be dense.
  4. Shape the mixture into a rectangular loaf on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper.
  5. Spread the ketchup evenly on top. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees F and the meat loaf is cooked through. (Note: A pan of hot water in the oven, under the meat loaf, will keep the top from cracking.)
  6. Serve hot.

  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375°C.
  2. Cut the cinnamon roll dough into 3 even strips.
  3. Cut those strip in 3 pieces, making 9 pieces total per cinnamon roll. Set aside the icing.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, and extract, stirring until smooth. Set aside.
  5. In a pan over medium heat, combine butter, apples, and brown sugar, cooking until sugar starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
