A new favourite at our house! The meatloaf was great but the potatoes recipe did it for me. I loved that they had such great taste and didn't have any milk/cream or butter in them. My friend doesn't believe that mashed potatoes can be a hit without those ingredients. I'm confident I will prove him wrong with this winner! Thanks so much for sharing!
This made a nice meatloaf and potatoe dish. The potatoes really made this dish and would have been over the top if I would have made gravy. For the potatoes I used two chipotles chilies and thought it was going to be too hot, but it was perfect. This dish made a very nice meal. Thank you for posting SouthernBell.
I easily modified this for the Weight Watchers Core plan by using lean beef and fat free yogurt, and substituting oatmeal for the breadcrumbs and 75% fat free cheddar for the potatoes, which worked great. I think fat free cheese would work too, but I can't stand the stuff! The cinnamon, chipotle and chicken stock were what made the potatoes delicious and different without all the fat of butter and milk or cream. The meatloaf was just wonderful and guilt free! Very moist, flavorful, held together well and was looked geautiful on the plate next to the colorful potatoes. It is all wonderful reheated as well. I'd call it a half hour of prep time since all the work on the potatoes can be done during the last half hour that the meatloaf is in the oven, so start to finish is about 90 minutes - not bad at all!
The meatloaf was delicious and beautiful. In fact I think it should be called Mexican Confetti Meatloaf with all the colorful vegetable bits going on. I made 1/2 a recipe of the meatloaf using ground turkey in an effort to cut down on the saturated fat. It still took the recommended 55 minutes to bake. The chipotle potatoes were incredibly good made with cheddar. Surprisingly, I did use up almost a full cup of broth as directed. This is going to be a repeat at our house.
