Meat Loaf and Scalloped Potatoes

Tonight's dinner is courtesy of my friend at A Taste of Home Cooking. I have wanted to make my own scalloped potatoes and the recipe she gave me was highly recommended. When I went to her blog, I also saw a delicious meat loaf she made that came from Ina Garten. I did make a few changes to the meat loaf: I used 1.2 lbs of ground beef and adjusted the ingredients to suit the smaller amount and one minor change to the potatoes by adding about 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese to them but Sarah was right. These are so damn good, I could barely contain myself. In fact, I heard a lot of "this is the best meat loaf ever" and "these potatoes are incredible." A successful dinner and I will definitely be making these two things again.

Seriously, make these if you need to impress someone, it will work.

Looks like comfort food at it's best!

Awesome!! I'm so glad the potatoes were good. Aren't they addictive? I swear, we could eat the whole pan in one sitting. :) And I love Ina's meatloaf recipe...super moist and so flavorful. It's actually a turkey meatloaf recipe and I think it tastes even better that way then with ground beef.

Looks like a great meal to warm up to in the winter!
