Ooey Gooey Cheesy Meatloaf in a crockpot for convenience and ease. Put this in before work and finish it when you get home. A treat for the entire family.


  • 2 pounds ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or 1 1/2 teas minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped fine
  • 1/3 cup Hulled hemp seeds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup crushed GG’s Everything Seed Crackers
  • 3/4 cup sugar free barbecue sauce, divided (I use this one)
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon garlic coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 6 slices of raw bacon
  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, parsley, hemp seeds, both eggs, cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, almond milk, Garlic Aminos sauce, salt and pepper.
  2. Place a large piece of foil on a large cutting board (big enough to line the slow cooker pot).
  3. Dump meat mixture out onto the foil
  4. Shape the meat mixture into a rectangle about 1-inch thick. Slice the cheese in half lengthwise and place one half in center of meatloaf mixture. Reserve remaining half of cheese for another use.
  5. Sprinkle cheese with crumbled bacon.
  6. With your hands, pull the sides up and form the meatloaf mixture around cheese to seal cheese inside.  Be sure to seal the log up tightly so that none of the cheese leaks out.
  7. Spread remaining 1/2 cup barbecue sauce over top and sides of meatloaf.
  8. Place in slow cooker and cover.
  9. Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or LOW for 4 to 5 hours. If using a slow cooker with a probe, cook until meatloaf reaches 165°F.
  10. When that is done, pre-heat oven to 450°F.
  11. Carefully lift foil with meatloaf from crockpot allowing any extra juices to pour back into the crock.
  12. Place in a lined baking pan (foil or parchment will work).
  13. Surround the meatloaf log with slices of bacon. (use extra bacon if needed) You can lay them or weave them, your choice.
  14. Bake in preheated oven for 5-15 minutes just enough to crisp the bacon.
  15. Remove from oven and add crushed pork rinds or sautéed onion flakes on top of meat and bake for another 5 minutes.
  16. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
