What a delicious meatloaf. We used Horseradish Mashed Potatoes 39327 by Lali, and the whole lot was great. I really enjoyed the tomato, cheese and brown sugar topping.

This is very tasty. I had this exact recipe in a cookbook I tried this week. The tomato sauce on top mixed with the brown sugar gives it a very good flavor. This is also good cold out of the fridge.

I agree that it was a little runny - next time will form it first and add a little more binder. I made real mashed potatoes. After it cooled it set up nicely. It was a very good and different meatloaf. Thanks.
