what size slow cooker???

What size was the slow cooker used? Size of slow cooker should be included in recipe! I only have a 2L slow cooker (it's very small) because I'm only one person. How can I know if this recipe will cook in it without spilling over or the sides burning because the middle isn't cooking, etc... It sounds like a worth while recipe but without telling me what size you used, how am I to know I'm not wasting money/ingredients for something that can't be done in a small cooker?

this is a very old post with recipe. i don't think old blue posts anymore. i would think you will have to use your common sense for this one.

Seeing as how the recipe calls for 2 lbs ground beef my guess would be at least a 5 qt crockpot. You could always cut the recipe in half for a smaller one.

If I make the meatloaf with ground turkey instead of ground beef, should I use turkey gravy instead of beef gravy?

Looks great! I'll give it a try, my meatloaf is made "alla my way"..lol! Since I tried making it from what I've seen on Food Network and don't really know how it's done. I made it baked in an italian style tomato sauce topped with Mozza, would love to try a proper meat loaf!
