Meat loaf, potatoes, and veggies all wrapped up in one dynamite dinner...Now that's smart cooking! You won't need any side dishes with this easy beef dinner because it's all cooked up into one tasty meal. All you'll need is a plate, a fork... and your appetitie!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) can condensed vegetarian vegetable soup
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 lightly beaten eggs, used separately
  • 2 cups instant mashed potatoes, prepared according to package directions reducing water to 3/4 cup

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except potatoes and 1 egg.
  3. On a rimmed cookie sheet or in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish that has been coated with nonstick vegetable spray, form the mixture into an oval-shaped loaf and bake for 1 hour.
  4. While whipping the instant mashed potatoes with a fork, add the remaining beaten egg and whip until well blended.
  5. When meat loaf has cooked for 1 hour, remove from oven and drain off grease in the pan. Completely "frost" meat loaf with the potatoes and return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are slightly crusted and heated through.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is probably a stupid question, but is the 2 cups of instant mashed potatoes, 2 cups dry or 2 cups cooked. Thanks.

Hello! That would be 2 cups cooked. The recipe states 2 cups dry instant mashed potatoes prepared according to package directions using only 3/4 cup water. Hope this helps!

okay. My mashed potatoes seemed a little dry

have not made it yet.

I plan on trying this one!

you mentioned 3 eggs. In the 2nd portion of the directions it says one egg and in the 4th portion it says egg. What happened to the 3rd egg?? thank you.

Hi there! In the second step you are using 2 eggs (the directions read: all but 1 egg), and in the fourth step you are using the last egg. Enjoy!

Hi, can use substitute Oatmeal for bread crumbs. This looks yummy.

Oatmeal can definitely be substituted for bread crumbs, just be sure to chop it in a food processor or blender first!

Would prefer to use real mashed potatoes. Is it possible with this recipe?

It is possible to use real mashed potatoes if you make them stiff and not too loose. They will slide off the meatloaf if too much milk is added.

Do you drain the soup before adding to meat?

No, you do not. Just add the entire can of soup to the meat. Thank you and enjoy!

Made ths for the family. Great hit. Very flavorful meatloaf. The younger kids really got a kick out of the potatoe frosted meatloaf. Highly recommend this recipe.

Try cutting recipe in half or do whole thing, eat what you want then divide the rest in portions & try freezing. Just a thought.

Would like a smaller version for 1 person!

Hi i make this and put into single serv. size baking dishes the wrap well and freeze. you can get 4 or 5 that way.
