Meat Loaf Pie Recipe

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."
