Lipton's Meatloaf, Smashed Potatoes and carrots

Jun 28 2017

My first real meal in about 1 ½ months! I was getting tired of eating carry ins; my wife doesn’t cook a lot, but she did make salmon patties last week. My stomach was getting back to normal. I had blood tests last Tuesday and saw my Dr. Monday. She said all the numbers were back to normal. I have two more tests to make sure all is OK.

The Lipton’s meat loaf is not my favorite but I like it and it’s my wife’s favorite. It doesn’t take much prep work I use Lipton’s Beefy Onion soup mix. I had some smashed baby Dutch potatoes and carrots as sides.

I only used 1 ½ lbs. ground chuck so cut the water and bread crumbs some. I made up the meatloaf early and had it ready for the oven. I had to use the oven since I don’t have my smoker fixed yet. We like meatloaf and I think this is the first time I have done it inside since 2011 when I got my pellet smoker.

I got the meatloaf in the oven at 350 deg. I set it on a foiled trivet in a Lodge CS skillet to drain the fat. I cut crosses in enough potatoes for the two of us and nuked them for 5 minutes on high. I smashed them up roughly, and added, a little salt, dried garlic and poured ½ stick melted butter over them and in the oven. The carrots I did stove top with water a couple pats of butter, salt and parsley. It took about 1 hour 20 min. for the meatloaf. My potatoes were done early so I placed them on my warming burner.

I had some Kings Hawaiian hot dog buns left so that was our bread and butter rolls. Did that ever taste good to me!
