Nothing screams comfort food like these two items. Everyone seems to have their favorite recipe for each of them. I'm sharing mine tonight.
I made a variant of this recipe.
2 lbs ground meat
1 c. plain bread crumbs
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1/3 c. ketchup
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Bake at 375* for 45 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.
3 lbs. Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
Place potatoes in a large pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook over medium high heat for 8-12 minutes or until fork tender. Drain well. Return potatoes to pot. Add 2 tbsp. butter and 1/2 c. chicken broth. I like to use my hand-held mixer to "mash" the potatoes. Cover to keep warm until ready to eat.
Serve with brown gravy and green beans!
