Meatloaf and Crispy tater casserole

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Nothing fancy just a normal meat loaf cooked on the mini. Just in time for Turkey day crispy tater casserole.

 

Crispy tater casserole is super simple, and can be modified to different tastes. This one I kept simple but you can add cheese, prosciutto, bacon, etc.. nutmeg, all spice, etc can be added also.

 

8-12 peeled & thinly sliced taters (i recommend using a mandolin to accomplish this). Rinse slices in cold water until water is clear, drain well.

3 tablespoon melted butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

3-4 minced garlic cloves

4 shallots thinly sliced

salt pepper to taste

6-8 sprigs of fresh thyme

 

Preheat oven to 375°. Melt butter and combine with olive oil and minced garlic. Lightly brush casserole dish with mixture. Mix shallots with tater slices. Add remaining butter mixture to tatters and shallots, mix well. Stack taters vertically in casserole. Bake in oven for 70 minutes. Add thyme on top and cook for an additional 35 minutes. If adding other things like bacon, cheese etc, add at this time.

 

 

Ready for the oven

 

 

Out of the oven

 

 

ENJOY!!!!

Hour and some change running around 350. Pulled it at 156 and let it cruise to 160 before slicing.

They are tasty and simple. We'll do a batch of these along with mashed potatoes too Turkey Day.

Wow, those potatoes look great, dirtsailor!
We'll be trying that soon, though I'll probably cut the recipe in half for just the two of us. Cook time probably won't change much.

I have a few 5x5 square ramikans that hold 3 potatoes nicely and we do smaller batches. I have found the times remain the same. Of course the leftovers don't seem to last long either...

Dang, those 'taters are a good idea - reminds me of Hasselback potatoes, but in a caserole form.

 

This is definitely a must try for me, and I even still have some fresh thyme growing in the yard Thumbs Up

Thyme is the only still growing in our yard!

Hi Stan! The meatloaf was pretty simple, just 1 1/2 pound 80/20 ground chuck, 1 small chopped onion, 1 can green olives (sliced), good dallop of guldens mustard, a swirl of worchestshire, salt, pepper, and 4 minced garlic cloves.  Served with fresh grated horseradish.
