The more meat the better,
The more potatoes, the better.
I have a dish for any carnivore-of-the-male-persuasion. (carnivores of the female persuasion like it too!)
Ok.... dont let the term meatloaf scare ya. It's not a usually pretty dish. It's a hunk of seasoned meat on a plate. Yummy as it may be.. it is not pretty. for most men, it's good enough, I know.
But I think we can do it better.
This is more of a technique than a recipe per say.
1.) Make your favorite Meatloaf recipe. (yes, this is my 8lb raw meatloaf, I have lots of men-folk ya know!)
2.) Cook it.
3.) make a big batch of mashed potatoes. (I made garlic mashed potatoes. again.. easy!)
4.) throw in a handful of shredded cheese of your choice, (cheddar or mozzarella are good!) This helps the mashed potatoes become a little bit elastic & spreadable.
5.) Plop your mashed potatoes on top of your meatloaf. (yes, I said plop that is a gourmet term ya know!)
6.) Frost your meatloaf with the taters. I use my icing spreader thingie. (If the taters start to stick to your spreader thingie, just smear some butter on it. then it will slide like.... well... butter.)
Ain't that purdy?
7.) Throw the whole purdy frosted thing under your broiler. (watch it closely! you just want to give it a little color and this does not take long!)
(ain't it purdier?)
