Cowboy Meatloaf and Potato Casserole

by 247tasty

This recipe reminds me of the wild, the horses, and the farm. If I remember it right this is the same meal I had when I visited my friend in Texas. Since I was there only for 2 days, he made sure I tasted this, if not the real skewer. It’s just sad that I forgot to ask for the recipe. That’s why I’m so thrilled when I found this, I thought, hey this is the same casserole that I’ve been craving for! It’s super flavorful, delicious, and so far the best meatloaf with potato dish I have ever tasted!


1 pkg. of steam n’ mash potatoes
1 lb ground beef
3/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup Sweet Baby Rays original bbq sauce
1 egg lightly beaten
2 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup crumbled bacon (I used real bacon bits)
1/3 cup of crispy fried onions, crumbled
2/3 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
