Katie Lee's Classic Meatloaf

A classic meatloaf is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I love the way that the ketchup caramelizes on top of the meat.

Classic Mashed Potatoes

Cream and butter are the secrets to decadent, holiday dinner-worthy mashed potatoes. This dish tastes like a special-occasion side, but it's easy enough to make on a weeknight, too.

I am a true meatloaf fan since the possibilities for unique combinations of meat and spices are endless. In this turkey loaf, the layer of melted cheese in the middle is my favorite part. Looking to really spice up a Taco Tuesday? Try this hearty loaf!
