My family and friends are always impressed with these meatballs, which I serve with homemade sauce. The recipe came from an old friend of Italian descent. The mashed potatoes guarantee that the meatballs stay moist.—Lucille Bilodeau, Lewiston, Maine
I came up with this recipe after my daughter had cheese fries at a restaurant and couldn't stop talking about them. She loves that I can fix them so quickly at home. Plus, the frozen fry packets can be refrigerated and reheated. -Melissa Tatum, Greensboro, North Carolina
Hearty and comforting, this meat-and-potatoes meal is rich with homemade goodness…and it’s easy to prepare. “Sometimes I use chicken thighs instead of pork chops,” notes Joyce Valentine of Sanford, Colorado.
A new twist on an old favorite is this marvelous meat loaf from Brenda Biron's kitchen in Sydney, Nova Scotia. A hearty ham and cheese filling is rolled up inside ground beef. Potatoes and carrots baked alongside make it a hearty one-dish meal.
