Meatloaf Ingredients:
1 & 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup saltine cracker crumbs
3 TBSP. milk
1 TBSP. chili powder
3/4 tsp. salt
 

Topping Ingredients:
3 cups prepared mashed potatoes
1 can whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained (11 oz.)
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 to 1 cup taco seasoned cheese, shredded

 

Instructions:
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, combine meatloaf ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly; gently press into bottom of 9-inch square baking pan, Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until center is no longer pink. Carefully pour off drippings.
Meanwhile in medium bowl, combine all topping ingredients except cheese. Spread over meatloaf to edges of pan; sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Cut into 6 rectangular servings.
Makes 6 servings.
Tips:
*For extra rich mashed potatoes, add sour cream and butter with the milk.
*For a lower fat meatloaf, use a pan with a perforated liner, this allows extra juices to drain during cooking.
*Gentle handling when mixing ground beef with ingredients will ensure a moist, tender meatloaf.
*Ground chuck is a good choice for this recipe.
