Easy Meatloaf Mashed Potato Casserole

This is my quick and easy version of Sheppards pie – its basically an easy meatloaf recipe with creamy mashed potatoes on the top.  The potatoes are nice and creamy with a crispy crust – classic comfort food!

Easy Meatloaf Mashed Potato Casserole


  • 1.5 – 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 packet lipton onion soup mix (dry mix)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 russett potatoes
  • 1 cup frozen peas (optional) *defrost peas

Mashed Potatoes

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup cream (to your preference)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Process:

Boil potatoes with just enough water to cover.  Once cooked, skin potatoes and mash in a bowl.  Add butter, cream, salt and pepper.  You can adjust the amount of milk to achieve consistency to your preference.  Just ensure that the potatoes aren’t runny.

In bowl, mix ground beef, onion soup mix, peas (optional) and eggs.  Mix well and flatten into a 8×6″ or 8″ x 8″ pan.  For best results, use a ceramic pan.

Layer mashed potatoes over meatloaf mixture and cook at 350 for 1 hour.

*Note – If you are using a metal pan, it may take up to 20 minutes longer to cook.

Goes well with Killer Brown Gravy!!

Kelly Boy & Leolani DeLimas Lu Pulu

Kelly Boy & Leolani Delima of Kapena joined us on the island of Lanai for a special episode of Cooking Hawaiian Style making this Tongan dish call lu pulu to pay tribute to his Tongan brothers.  Lu pulu is made with taro or luau leaves, beef brisket and coconut milk.  This is one of my new favorite comfort dishes.

Prep Time: 15 | Cook Time: 5-8 hours in slow cooker | Ready In: 5-8 hours (slow cooker)

Kelly Boy & Leolani DeLimas Lu Pulu


  • 4 lbs. fresh beef brisket or corned beef brisket
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 2 bags luau leaf
  • 2 – 12 ounce coconut milk
  • 3 ti leaves

Cooking Process:

In a slow cooker place the 3 ti leaves to cover the bottom and sides of slow cooker. Dice the large sweet onion and place in the slow cooker. Then, place fresh corned beef, cleaned luau leaves and coconut milk. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 10 hours.

Note: If you use corned beef brisket, I would recommend either doubling the amount of luau leaf and coconut milk or boil the corned beef brisket for 1 hour, empty water and add fresh water to avoid it being too salty.
