Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Use Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liners so you can spend your time after dinner telling ghost stories instead of cleaning up!


  • 8 ounces fettuccine noodles, cooked
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small bell pepper (green or red)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 small handful of basil leaves (optional)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 package of mozzarella cheese slices
  • 1 jar pasta sauce
  • Black olives (for eyes)
  • Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liners


Step 1

In a food processor, blend onion, bell pepper, garlic and basil leaves until very fine.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, combine the vegetable mixture with ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, milk, ricotta cheese and Italian seasoning. Mix until thoroughly combined. Form the meat mixture into the shape of a loaf.

Step 3

Line a 5-to 6-quart slow cooker with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner. Open slow cooker liner and place it inside a slow cooker bowl. Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim of bowl.

Step 4

Place meatloaf inside a lined slow cooker.

Step 5

Place slices of mozzarella cheese on the meatloaf, so that none of the meat is visible.

Step 6

Begin layering individual strands of fettuccine on top of the meatloaf, mimicking the look of a mummy. Adjust the position of the individual strands to cover the cheese.

Step 7

Once satisfied with the look of your mummy meatloaf, turn on the slow cooker to low, place the lid on top, and set the timer for 5 hours. After 4 hours of cooking, spoon about half the jar of pasta sauce around the bottom of the mummy meatloaf.

Step 8

Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. Using plastic of wooden utensils, lift the mummy to a serving plate. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside. Cool slow cooker completely; remove liner and toss.

Step 9

Just before serving, add some olive eyes to your mummy
