Meatloaf in a clay pot = amazing!


I am getting more brave with my clay pot cooking experiments. We started with the Cornish Game Hens, then did chicken with 40 cloves of garlic, and today I want to share with you the meatloaf meal. I love meatloaf, and thought it would be a lot of fun to try this cooking method.

Claypot Meatloaf
Meatloaf is in the pot and ready to go. To prepare your pot for cooking read my Cornish Game Hen post.
Clay Pot Meatloaf - cooked
TAA-DAA! The recipe says to cook it ~90 minutes, I think at ~80 minutes you could put your meat thermometer in and see if it was ready. Next time I would also double the amount of yummy goodness spread over the top (aka ketchup blend).
Clay Pot Meatloaf dinner
I served the meatloaf with squash and a green salad. The meatloaf was excellent!

So far, the meatloaf has been my favorite clay pot dinner. It was very moist and had a rich, meaty flavor with the hint of earthiness from the clay. This recipe was the hardest to clean up afterwards. Some of the meat was stuck pretty good to the bottom of the pot. Next time I would add just a bit more liquid, or as I mentioned, decrease the cooking time. I also found a meatloaf and potato recipe. This one suggests putting the potatoes around the loaf, but I think I would put a layer of potatoes on the bottom, then the meat on top. Stay tuned, we have some other clay pot creations coming.

  1. Lindsay,
    I’m a meatloaf fan. I like it cold in sandwiches too.

    I’ve never used a clay pot cooker. My mother-in-law has a clay pot she uses to make
    from scratch baked beans.

    I do have a dutch oven. My Mom wanted one for her birthday a few years ago and she loved it so much I asked for one for Christmas.

    1. Hi Robyn, do you think you MIL would share her bean recipe? I bet those would be great in the clay pot. I don’t have a Dutch oven (yet), but see so many great meals people make with them.
