Meatloaf patties and smashed potatoes with scallions February 18, 2015

I came across this recipe in Rachael Ray’s 30-Minute Comfort Foods. I like meatloaf but the hubs isn’t a fan. I thought this one would interest him because it had mashed potatoes and gravy to go with it. I was right. The meat was moist and the gravy had a great flavor.


  • 8 – 10 small white or red-skinned potatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
    4 Scallions, sliced thin
  • Coarse salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 pound 90-percent lean ground beef sirloin or turkey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 14 ounce can lower-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

    Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook 10 to 12 minutes, until fork tender. Drain and return to hot pot. Add sour cream, milk, scallions and butter, and smash with a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper.

    Combine the bread crumbs, cumin, and allspice in a large bowl. Add milk, egg, onion, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, parsley, and beef. Mix together and form 4 or 5 oval-shaped patties.
    Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with vegetable cooking spray. Add patties to pan and cook 5 minutes. Flip, reduce heat, and cook 10 minutes more or until cooked through. Remove from pan and keep warm.
    To make gravy, add butter to pan and melt. Sprinkle in flour and cook over medium heat 2 minutes, whisking. Slowly add broth, stirring until combined. Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes. Whisk in barbecue sauce and tomato paste. Serve with meatloaf patties and potatoes.
