I made this for dinner last night. It was delish. I especially liked the potatoes inside. Didn't need to make potatoes separately. It was like an all in one dish. I just heated some frozen corn and some brown gravy and dinner was done. Great concept.

like shepards pie, only in a meatloaf pan minus the corn. Not so impressed.......

I made this last evening and it was so very good. I did jazz up the meatloaf mix with my own touches but the concept of potatoes inside was new for me. One tip, I tore off a piece of parchment paper and lined the loaf pan with it, keeping the long edges. My loaf pan has a lid and it fit well over the paper. About 10 mins before done, I pulled the loaf up by these edges and placed paper and meatloaf on a cookie sheet. It allowed the sides to get brown as I had a glaze on it and clean up was a snap.

How about using left over mashed potatoes for this?

Absolutely delicious. The only thing I changed was pouring brown gravy over the meatloaf prior to baking. Yum!

sounds realllly good, & like a new favorite

I'm sure it can be frozen,,, I like to wrap the loaf in bacon strips & mold it into a loaf, then place on a drip pan, thus it won't be sitting in it's own grease, you can also brush the top with a barbecue sauce,,, yummy. Let it sit a bit before slicing.

This looks like a great meatloaf. Can anyone tell me if it freezes well.

I do NOT like the "Big It On" black ad popping up at every ad, and printing same on top of the recipe!!! I don't need this hassle.

The ads served can be based on other websites you have been to.

No idea what ad you are talking about and I check this site nearly every day. Perhaps cleaning your cache would help. Sounds like a great recipe!!!! Will try this soon.

Wouldn't the potatoes turn out greasy?

1 to 1 pound of ground beef????

Thanks for catching! It is supposed to be 1 to 1-1/2 pounds ground beef. We made the correction above. Thank you for catching!
