Crockpot Meatloaf

2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 pieces  fully cooked Sicilian sausage
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Use a 7-quart slow cooker. I put a glass loaf pan into the slow cooker and baked the meatloaf in it (no need to add water, just put the loaf pan into the crock), you can make the meatloaf right in the crockpot if you would like.
Chop the sausage into pieces and place  it in a mixing bowl with the ground meat, all the spices and the beaten eggs. Mix well. Place the mixture into the loaf pan and place inside the crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3 to 5 hours. You'll know the loaf is done when it's brown on the top and it starts to pull away from the sides. If you're not using the loaf pan, the meat will cook faster---check after 4 hours on low, 2 to 3 on high. 
Let the meatloaf rest with the crockpot off for 15 minutes before removing.
