If so, how did you do it and how did it turn out?

I follow the recipe from Not Just Beans or Dining on A Dime, and my crockpot cooks fast, so I turn it on high for about two hours and it is done. Turns out moist. All that I do is spray the crockpot with Pam before putting the meatloaf in otherwise I do nothing else special.

I recipe I once saw said to shape it. Also, make a couple of long foil strips (folded over a few times to strengthen it), long enough to go under the meatloaf and hang outside the crock. Put the strips in then put the meat in. You use the strips as handles to remove the meatloaf when it's done.

The consistency was different. It wasn't firm enough. Blech! Won't do it again.

I often do this. I use a glass Pyrex loaf pan, however, which fits perfectly inside my CP. This turns the CP into a mini oven for me. Comes out fine.

We love meatloaf.  Hubby makes a mean meatloaf mixture, mine is not so good so he's the architect.  We always buy enough meat for at least 2, then I cook one in the oven and freeze 1 or 2 more.  The frozen ones go in the crockpot, only partially thawed.  Fresh ones have a weird texture and fall apart when cooked in the crockpot but the frozen ones turn out perfect.
