Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

If it was really cold and snowy outside this would be a perfect meal. It is not snowy and not even cold. But this is still comfort food so it comforts me as I mourn the lack of winter. My camera acted up and erased a lot of my photos so for a step by step view of this recipe, click on this link: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/09/meatloaf.html


I made some sandwich bread for meatloaf sandwiches. This is a fabulous loaf of bread: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2011/10/white-sandwich-bread.html
The recipe makes two loaves.


I served it with my most favorite gravy: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2011/09/returning-guests-and-gravy.html

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes with LOTS of butter is one of my all-time favorite meals. And LOVE meatloaf sandwiches. I like mine with Best Foods (Hellman's) mayo and ketchup and sprinkled with salt.

I love meatloaf! But I have it way to seldome! Long time since I made white bread, I think it is time to do so before I stop having a fire in the stove. All snow is gone now and soon the last of the ice as well. The rain has been pouring down today and the temperature has stayed high too :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

This is the voice of first hand knowledge! This meatloaf and gravy is to die for. I have not made the bread yet. The meatloaf and gravy I made Monday. Amazing!

I haven't had meatloaf for ages. This one looks delicious. It used to be the big thing in Qu├ębec, now I don't think I have seen one in years. When it is done properly, it is a great hearty meal. When it fails, it is vile.

We be of one blood, ye and I! Comfort foods, regardless of weather that refuses to support us... Grrr. it's going to be 70 tomorrow and fruit trees are sooo confused. I love meatloaf and was waiting for a cooler day. Now, I know it will never happen, so I'm going to take the plunge and just do it. Thanks for sharing.

What a great comfort meal! We had meatloaf last night, a favorite of my husband. I'll have to try your recipe next time.

Another bang up job! My husband his buddies were home after working cows and bedding, it was cold and they loved this meatloaf. I served it with the bread and mashed potatoes. It was eaten up!
