Mashed Potato Stuffed Meatloaf Squares

1. Meatloaf Base: The base of mashed potato stuffed meatloaf squares consists of seasoned ground meat, typically beef, pork, or a combination of both. The ground meat is mixed with ingredients such as breadcrumbs, eggs, onions, garlic, herbs, and spices, adding flavor and moisture to the meat mixture.

2. Mashed Potato Filling: The star of the dish is the creamy mashed potato filling. Mashed potatoes are prepared with butter, milk, salt, and pepper until smooth and creamy. Some recipes may also include additional ingredients such as sour cream, cheese, chives, or bacon bits for extra flavor.

4. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the meatloaf squares and the oven temperature.

5. Serving: Once baked, the mashed potato stuffed meatloaf squares are allowed to cool slightly before being sliced into individual portions and served. Each square reveals a mouthwatering combination of savory meat and creamy mashed potatoes, making it a comforting and satisfying meal.
