Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I started making this over 7 years ago. I started making this over 7 years ago. I have to make a double recipe every time. It's one of my most requested recipes to make when I have guests over. This is a no fail recipe. I make the meat mixture up before I go to work and let it set all day in the fridge. When I get home I finish off the recipe. That's the best way or make it before bed and reheat it the oven and add mashed potatoes. It's always better the next day.

I consider myself a decent cook and was very excited to find this recipe since it was rated so highly. My husband complains b/c I never make meatloaf. I followed all instructions and it looked very good. The flavor was pretty bland and the potatoes had no flavor, really. I was truly disappointed at the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The mashed potatos were AMAZING! The mashed potatos were AMAZING! It was such a GREAT tasting meat loaf. I was a little worried about putting american cheese on top but it was surprisingly good. I put chopped onions and green peppers in it too. This was my first but I think im sticking to this one. Both my husband and picky daughter loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was very tasty. It was very tasty. I especially liked the cream cheese in the potatoes. The only problem was that there was way too much potatoes. I needed to add more milk. I think half the amount would have been fine. My husband then had it as a midnight snack. This will definitely be a standard in our house--very easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from To me, this tasted horrible! To me, this tasted horrible! I measured the potatoes and they came out too thick to spread. I wanted to try something different on my meatloaf with the bbq sauce, but I think I'll just stick to tomatoe sauce. Won't be making this again. No one ate it..we just ordered some pizza instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The flavors of this dish were really good. The flavors of this dish were really good. I put garlic powder in the mashed potatoes, and used shredded Cheddar since that was what I had on hand. Next time I will either bake it for less time or use 1-1/2 lbs of meat because the meatloaf part was a bit dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great one dish meal that is comfort food that my family enjoys. A great one dish meal that is comfort food that my family enjoys. Very easy to make and quite a value for the money. I have to make it in double batches so my husband can take it to work the next day with bread and gravy. It's typical Kraft Quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is soo good! This is soo good!! Everyone LOVED it. This time I used 1/4c of spicy bbq and 1/4 regular to give it a little zip. I love the potatoes too. Now any time I make potatoes they have to have cream cheese in them.
