I was making this last night and thought I’d share it because I hate normal meatloaf.  I don’t know if this qualifies as “meatloaf” technically, and it’s definitely not a romantice, light the candles, have dinner with your significant other dinner. But I love it  and my kids scarf this down and beg for more.  My ex-husband would call this another one of Heather’s conglomerations.  I can’t cook well if I follow a recipe but if I just throw things in, I’m good.

This feeds our family of 6 including my husband who eats about 1/2 the pan himself.

January-2011-1I’m not the most talented food photographer

2 lbs of hamburger (I use 93/7)

1 small bag of frozen corn (or 1 can)

1 small bag of frozen green beans (or 1 can)

1 can of mushrooms

2 eggs

2 cups of oatmeal

Some type of seasoning – last night I used Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, sometimes I use tomato basil, other times I use Lowry’s.  I just throw it in, I probably use 2-3 teaspoons

Salt – again, I throw it in, probably 2 teaspoons

Pepper – maybe 3/4 teaspoon

6 servings of mashed potatoes (Either make your own, last night I used box, or frozen)

2 cups of cheddar cheese – I use sharp

Mix the hamburger, corn, green beans, mushrooms, eggs, oatmeal, seasoning, salt, and pepper together.  Put it in a 9X13 pan.  Cook for 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees.

I make the mashed potatoes while that’s cooking.

When both are done, spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the meatloaf.

Sprinkle the cheese over that.

Throw it back in the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Pull it out, slice it up, feed your family.

I’ve been known to slip lots of different vegetables that my kids won’t normally eat happily into this.  Kidney beans, hominy, carrots, etc.  Sliced up small, they never know they are in there. Best way to get your kids to eat something they don’t like?  Slip it into something they DO like without them knowing.

Katiana saw me putting oatmeal in it last night and was slightly freaked out until she ate some.  I told her it’s how I always make it but she still started out with an itty bitty teeny bite.  Silly girl.
