Meatloaf, Potato Gratin, Broccoli

We love a nice, hearty meal on Sundays. I was in the mood for my favorite potato gratin and we had some broccoli crowns that needed to be used. SP suggested meatloaf to round out the meal.


I'm not sure what happened with the potato gratin but for some reason my mandoline cut the potatoes much thicker then usual. It still tasted fantastic, but the large chunks of potatoes were different texturally:


I used Ina's recipe for turkey meatloaf, substituting meatloaf mix for the turkey.


It was a delicious meal all around. While we were eating SP and I decided to reinstitute the Sunday dinners we used to have before we started saving for, and eventually buying, our house. Hopefully we can start inviting family over soon, although I don't think we're going to do it every week.
Pin It!

  2. Looks delicious and I know what you mean about gratins... the potatoes have to be just at the right thickness for it to get the proper texture and I had issues with my potatoes the last time I made a potato gratin. I look forward to reading up on your Sunday dinners!
