Vegetarian Cowboy Meatloaf

"This is originally from Cooking Light magazine. This is one of my husband's favourites, and he's not even vegetarian. I found another version of this recipe that suggested using uncooked, grated potato instead of the cooked potato. That's a time-saving method probably worth a try, because there is quite a lot of prep required for this recipe."

    This was yummy! Mine didn't stay together as a loaf very well, but it could be because I didn't let it cool very long before cutting AND I used refrigerated grated potatoes instead of mashed ones. The flavor is very nice, though; DH even shocked me by taking multiple servings. He usually complains when I make veg loaves!!

    Excellent! I used the premade mashed potatoes found in the cold food section of the grocery store. Made it pretty easy. 2 out of my 3 kids and my carnivour husband like it, too. Texture was a bit mushy, but the taste was great.


I was born and raised in the USA but now live in Melbourne, Australia. I have been here since 1999. My husband is Australian. We have two daughters (born May '05 and May '07) and a yellow Labrador. I cook mainly for my family. I do my best to feed them (and myself) plenty of whole grains and vegetables, with small amounts of lean meats and "good fats". Most of my recipes will lean in that direction, although sometimes I will post something that just tastes good!
