"The meat loaf recipe from that page in quick cooking was called double meat loaf."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2014

"This how I make mashed potatoes when I make something we really like and are going to have 2 or 3 nights in a row, such as meatloaf. I always use paper muffin liners so the potatoes come out easily. This is a basic mashed potato recipe. I swap out the 2% milk for half and half, we like rich foods. You can add whatever you like to these mashed potato cups, bacon, green onion, diced sharp cheddar, etc. Try dropping a bay leaf or 2 to the potato water when you turn the heat on, it will add a depth of flavor."
