Instant mashed potatoes cut down the prep time for this meaty pie without sacrificing taste. This recipe is very fast and easy to put together, It's been a family favorite for decades and remains my children's most-asked-for meat loaf. —Lorraine J. Darocha, Mountain City, Tennessee

"I often make this when children will be eating with us. My grandkids love it. The adults all enjoy it, too. I make real mashed potatoes rather than instant."
