I didn't even realize this was a slow cooker recipe, it is so similar to one I make, with a few tweaks. I replace 1/2 lb ground beef with sage sausage (eliminate the ground sage). Like some other reviewers, I used fresh onion, but also added some minced garlic, and fine chopped red pepper. I used Italian bread crumbs. I bake in 350 oven for 1 1/4 hrs (time is approx.). Now, this is the biggest change. I don't use the topping listed at all. Instead, I take 1 can golden mushroom soup (we like it better than regular in this), put it in a 2 cup measuring cup and add enough water to make 2 cups and mix. About 1/2 hr before meatloaf is ready I pour this over it. Instant gravy. The juices from the meatloaf mix with it and it's so delicious. Of course, we have to have mashed potatoes to serve the gravy over.
