Very easy recipe. Tastes delicious. I add mixed vegitables for an easy Shepherds Pie.

I have been making this basic recipe since the mid- s Recipe in a pamphlet at the grocery store I ALWAYS use my favorite meat loaf recipe - AND - I use chili sauce instead of ketchup Chili sauce perks it up better than ketchup I use a -inch glass pie dish for baking After the initial - minutes baking - I remove from oven and LINE the meat mix with my favorite cheese jalapeno cheese - THEN I add the mashed potatoes on top of cheese to finish the baking AND sprinkle some grated cheese on top of potatoes Would usually serve broccoli or glazed carrots as side dish ANYMORE - since the childer are grown and gone - I use instant mashed potatoes NOW just wait - I doctor the instant mashed potatoes with lots of butter good flavored oleo finely sliced onion a tad of garlic and justRead More add a little dry creamer because I do not usually have milk on hand NOTE try chili sauce INSTEAD of ketchup in various other recipes - REALLY PERKS UP BETTER THAN KETCHUP -

P.S. - This "Hamburger/Meat Pie" freezes really well! Cut into serving size pieces and freeze. Good for another meal(s) OR to take in "lunch box" to work and warm up - most places have a microwave oven anymore.

Your recipe sound yummy! That's how I'm going to make it---Thank you!!!

This sounds a lot like Shepherd's Pie. Only thing is, between the meat and the potatoes is a layer of mixed vegetables. At least that is how I make it. I'm from Texas, and now live in fairly Dutch area, and the people I know around here don't call it Country Meat Loaf...just sayin'. Doesn't mean it's not true, in bigger areas. But, seeing this made me want to make Shepherd's Pie. So based on that similarity, I would give this recipe a 5..with some minor changes.

'Twas good, but nothing to write home about! I added some jalepenos to the meat mix and some cheese on the potatoes...

Made this gluten-free by subbing 20 Glutino Original Bagel Chips (crushed) for the bread, also added half a cup chopped green was outstanding.

Great recipe. I too added some shredded cheddar cheese on top of potatoes.

I call this Shepard's Pie and make it by just browning hamburger with onion and garlic powder or fresh garlic, mix with a can of mixed veggies, and make a brown gravy, using just a little in the meat mixture and the rest on the side for when the casserole is done.

We used to have Shepard's Pie in grammar school,in the 50's, and it resembled this dish. It also had a layer of cheese between the ground beef and the potatoes. The lines were long on the days it was served.

This is really good. Yumy

I have been eating this dish for seventy years, back home in England it is called Shepherds Pie, I never get tired of eating it and my friends love it. Thanks for the spin on this recipe :-)

I think you will find that this is cottage pie made with beef and shepherds pie is made with lamb

i like more veggies in mine

I tried this dish TEXICANIZED, small p[ork or beef roast pulled w/veggie, mashed tater or tater tots on top mixed w.onion soup mix, some japs & mince garlic, a small can of totoma paste mixed w/above ingeridents and pour over the meats & taters,U pick the cheese for the top ans salad and garlic bread and vino!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i havent tried it yet, but i know its going to be yummy

Is a keeper....I added one teaspoon of garlic powder to meat ; also one half cup of shredded cheddar on top of potatoes.

i added 1 Tblsp brown sugar really enhanced flavor to topping. all my guys love this

made it according to recipe. excellent flavor and a real winner for the familly. Easy to make and plan to make it again.

Adding This to my box. Green beans, cabbage and Cheese sound like good variations for one dish meals. I will stick to making my meatloaf with oats instead of beread crumbs and adding a bit of ground pork or sausage to it though.

I made this and I and my husband liked it very much. It was two meals for us. Will definitely make it again. Thanks.

I have made this dish for years, but i put green beans in befor the potatoes, and put chedder cheese on. The whole family loves it. Nothing ever left.

sounds good with the green beans

i know because thats the way I always make it. Very Good!!

Old family favorite!! If you like cabbage we layered the bottom of the pan with it!! Yummy!!

How do you find out the nutritional information on these wonderful recipes?

Thank you so much for all the great recipe's.

this is soooo good!

I was born/raised in SE PA. Amish country and love them and their food! I've never had this meal it sounds VUNDERFUL. Mr. Food thank you for all the GREAT Amish recipes!

Fantastic family meal. Great for anyone and everyone.

My whole family loves this and that is unusual, they never agree on food. I have made it several times.

I have made a very similar meal to this but before the potatoes go on I add cream corn over the meat....Our family all love this...


Please post nutrition values. I have wanted to try many of your recipes but truely need the nutrition value. I know that, by reading the comments, that most people are requesting the same. Thank you

I would also like to see the nutrition values as I am on a low sodium diet.

I am on Weight. Watchers and need to know the serving size, fat grams, carbs, fiber, and protein grams.

FYI - I just went to the Weight Watchers site, they actually have free recipes just for you.

Where is the nutrition info?

I too watch what I eat I have learned how to replace certain ingredients in recipes to make them healthier Replace the ground beef with extra lean ground beef Add two egg whites instead of the whole egg The egg whites have no cholesterol and on cals per white plus they are still a good source of protien Use whole wheat bread instead of white It not only is better for you but you can get it with lower sugar or no sugar added at all now Skip the salt altogether and add different spices Any ones that you like and prefer will do As far as the seasoned mashed potatoes go you can season them without adding salt You can now buy ketchup that has no added sugar too By making these simple ingredient changes you will not only make recipes healthier but will also cut the calories down aRead More good bit

This was very good. I would definitely fix this again. My husband really liked it. The mashed potatoes on top were excellent! Good comfort food for cold nights!

This dish was great, DH even ate the leftovers which he never does.

This meal was simple and delicious. I made this for me and my husband the pickiest eater I know and he loved it!

This meatloaf recipe is one of the best! Way to go Mr. Food!

I'd like to try several of your recipes, but nowhere have I found nutritional information. Those of us with diabetes, salt restriction, low-carb, etc. need to know this.

With us watching what we eat to control blood pressure, high cholesterol ...etc the nutrition servings would be helpful..what I did with this receipe.. instead of bread I used 1/2 cup of Panko, instead of 1 egg I used 1/4 cup of egg beaters. It came out good and I cut out alot of sodium, sugar, and fats.

I made this over the weekend and it was awesome. The meatloaf was perfect and the potatoes just made it even more yummy!! I used ground turkey instead of beef, but it still tasted great.

Please start adding nutrition (Servings, serving size, calories, carbs etc. I plan on making this in the near furture,

???I'm confused, do these people at Mr Food work for you?

have been making this for many years delish.
