(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Low Carb Slow Cooker Italian Meatloaf from It’s Yummi is one of the most popular recipes ever featured on this site, so it seems appropriate to spotlight it again during January when people are focused on healthier eating.)
I’m focusing on healthier slow cooker recipes for the month of January, and when I spotted this delicious looking Low-Carb Slow Cooker Italian Meatloaf from It’s Yummi on Pinterest and then discovered it was a Low-Carb recipe that uses zucchini to bind the meatloaf together, I wrote the blogger immediately for permission to feature it. The recipe uses foil strips laid into the slow cooker before the meatloaf goes in to help lift it out more easily, which is a trick I’m going to have to try myself!
