Meat Loaf Pie

Instant mashed potatoes cut down the prep time for this meaty pie without sacrificing taste. This recipe is very fast and easy to put together, It's been a family favorite for decades and remains my children's most-asked-for meat loaf. —Lorraine J. Darocha, Mountain City, Tennessee

  • Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Meanwhile, prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions; stir in mustard.

Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
