Frankenfood: Convenient For Who? Ep2 Meatloaf & Mashed Potatoes

Hey all! I have another cooking demo for you.  I will apologize for the fuzzy sound in this video but I assure you it will improve!  My boyfriend felt my video and sound could have been better if I am going to keep up this videos so he got me a Go Pro.  Be prepared to be bombarded with cooking and crossfit videos!! Maybe both at the same time?


Today’s video is a simple throw together meal.  The video is really all the prep that went into it so its under 10 min of prep time and about 25-30 min of cooking time.  This recipe makes 6 servings.  Although there is more calories in my version I assure you that you will stay fuller longer and that this recipe is full of quality ingredients and not frankenfood.

Meatloaf & Mashed Potatoes

  • 1.5 lb meatloaf mix (beef & pork)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp each onion powder, salt, pepper (meatloaf)
  • tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 can of hunts fire roasted tomato with garlic
  • about 6 small red skin potatoes, skins on
  • 1/2-1 cup milk (use to get desired thickness)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package of frozen vegetables of your choice


Set oven for 350 degrees.  Mix meat, egg, dry seasonings and garlic.  Mix until combined but don’t over mix.  Divide meat into 6 portions and form 6 even patties and lay on a greased sheet pan.  Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes.

Start potatoes in cold water and boil until fork tender.  Remove from heat and drain.  Add seasoning, butter and add milk in small amounts until you get desired consistency.

Thaw veggies for assembling your meals.

Divide up all food items into 6 containers and enjoy a cooking free week!
