Meat Loaf With Potato Crust
Feed Eight for Under $10
Got a big dinner group but want to save some cash? No problem.
You may be surprised to find you can feed up to eight people and spend just $10. Catherine Cassidy from "Taste of Home" magazine demonstrated three recipes on "Good Morning America."
In a small skillet, sauté onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the seasonings. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in green onions and thyme. Transfer to a large bowl; cool to room temperature.
Whisk in the eggs; stir in bread crumbs. Crumble beef and veal over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf and place in an ungreased 13-in.x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water; add salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until tender; drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Mash potatoes with the broth, oil, pepper and reserved cooking liquid.
Using a large star tip, pipe mashed potatoes onto meat loaf. Bake 45 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and meat is no longer pink.
