A lot of people cringe when they hear the words “frozen or prepared mashed potatoes.” But simply potatoes are fresh, never frozen. There are few different varieties, mashed, cut and side dishes, check out all the different kinds here. As a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program I was able to try out Simply Potatoes. I tried the Tradtional Mashed Potatoes.
Since Halloween is approaching I decided to have a little fun with the mashed potatoes and make them into Ghostly Meatloaves! I have a very picky 1-year-old eater, so I thought if I made these little meatloaves fun she might enjoy them and she did! My trick worked!
1 package of Simply Mashed Potatoes
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of ketchup
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3/4 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bag of frozen corn kernels
- Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Combine the eggs, ketchup, Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste and stir in the breadcrumbs. Mix to combine. Add meats and mix together until well mixed. Divided the meat mixture among the 12 muffin cups. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or till the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
- Add the same time follow the directions on the Simply Mashed potatoes, I decided to make mine in the oven, so you transfer them to a an oven safe bowl and bake for about 20 minutes.
- Add some milk and butter to the potatoes once they are done cooking to make them a bit thinner, then place in a pastry bag. Place a individual meatloaf onto a plate and decorate with mashed potatoes, add 2 corn kernels for the eyes!
