Sharon’s Meatloaf and Seasoned Potatoes

by Sharon on March 31, 2011

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

The Meatloaf

In a mixing bowl, mix together…

2 eggs   ($.26)
1/4 cup breadcrumbs  ($.32)
1/4 cup Kraft BBQ sauce  ($.22)  (plus extra for serving)

Add 2 pounds of ground beef (on sale $3.40)

Mix well.

Divide this mixture and place in two separate bread pans. Bake for around 1 & 1/2 hours, or until cooked through. Serve this with a little BBQ sauce poured over the top. (Around 1/2 cup total for all servings will cost .44 cents)

Seasoned Potatoes

5 lbs of potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes (on sale $1.48)

Put 3 Tbsp of vegetable oil in a bowl.  Add the cubed potatoes.
To this, add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of onion powder.
[Oil and powders on hand at home. You could also add Italian seasoning to this if you'd like.]

Mix well.

Take a cookie sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Place seasoned potatoes on this pan. Spread them out into a single layer (as best you can).  Bake this in a 350 degree oven for around 30 minutes, turning once or twice if necessary.

Side Dishes

One Box of Stove Top Stuffing (savory herbs)  ($1.89)
Follow package directions. This cooks for only 5 minutes.

One can Green Giant Corn (on sale $.50)
One can Green Giant Peas  ($1.39)
Heat corn and peas together.

Total Cost  –  $9.90, serves 8.

I always have potatoes on hand so I try to find a variety of ways to make them. I often make home-baked fries using different spices depending on my mood:)

This sounds delicious! We do lots of potatoes too, thanks for a different way to prepare them! I’ve never thought to put BBQ sauce in the meatloaf! I’ll have to try that too :-)
