Mini Meatloaves and Mashed Potatoes

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Servings: 4 persons

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken ($1.49)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs ($.25) I ground up some GFCFSF cereal instead
  • 1 egg ($.12)
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup ($.10)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder ($.03)
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped ($.20)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • BBQ sauce ($.25)
  • 8 small potatoes ($.99)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup milk ($.12)
  • 1 -2 Tbsp olive oil (or butter) ($.10)
  • 1 acorn squash ($1.29)

Instructions

  • In large bowl, combine ground chicken, bread crumbs/chip crumbs, egg, ketchup and spices. (Or use your favorite meatloaf recipe!!!). Mix well. Scoop meat into muffin tins (I used mini loaf pan tin.) Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
  • Peel and quarter the potatoes. Boil for about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in bowl. Mash with potato masher. Add milk and butter/olive oil. Mix in seasonings. Stir well.
  • Prepare squash as follows. This is my favorite way to make it. "Steaming it in the oven" makes the flesh really soft. I would love to hear your favorite way to prepare acorn squash!
  • Cut acorn squash in half. (Microwaving the squash for 3-4 minutes will make it easier to cut.)
