Mushroom Meatfloaf

So my husband loves some comfort food. Especially the meat and potatoes kinda comfort food. Well lately we have been going non stop. Life is spinning faster than ever before, and I can tell he is pretty stressed out these days. So they other night I decided to surprise him with his favorite homemade dish. Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. (Good Housewife, right???!!!)

I have never been a meatloaf fan. It was just always so dry and yucky. ABout a year ago, Matt was craving it so I googled “Non dry meatloaf) because we all know I hate the word MOIS….I can’t even finish……Anyway, to my surprise there were so many recipes with same solution. Mushrooms, my favorite to eat, besides queso.

After the potatoes are mixed and glazed is heated you are done. It seems like a lot but it is SO easy. And it was SO yummy. When Matt came home, he tore that shit up. So did 1 out of 3 kids. So I would say successful.  We even had leaftovers from the small loaf and that shit was just as good!!!
