Potato Topped Meatloaf

Serves: 4-5

1 can (14 oz.) brown gravy, divided
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 c. bread crumbs
1/4 c. onion, finely chopped
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
2 1/2 c. hot mashed potatoes (3-4 medium potatoes)
1 T. butter, melted

Combine beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of gravy; mix well. Pat into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven and carefully drain fat. Spread potatoes over top and sides of meatloaf. Drizzle with melted butter; garnish with paprika. Return to oven; bake additional 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Heat remaining gravy and serve with meatloaf slices.

Tips: I am very particular about my meatloaf. My mom's and mother-in-law's meatloaf recipes are usually the only two that I consider good enough to grace our table. But this one caught my attention with the potatoes on top and I though I would give it a chance. I will admit that it was a worthy opponent. Any jar or can of brown gravy will work since only a 1/4 cup needs to be measured. I always use my KitchenAid Stand Mixer when I mix meat otherwise it kills your arm. I also shared this recipe at Simply Sweet Home's Friday Favorites.
