Mashed potatoes are traditional with meatloaf, at least around here. You'll usually find green beans or sweet peas and/or creamed spinach served along with these two...and fresh hot rolls, or cornbread. In fact, this is my menu for Monday! How 'bout some Apple Pie or Banana pudding for dessert? :D

Potato in any form is fine with me!! Except....with salmon patties ( or croquettes...which ever you prefer to call them) it MUST be buttered potatoes and green peas...with or without the carrots! Tiny red new potatoes, Petite Golden Yukons, quartered, or just ordinary Idaho "chunks" peeled or unpeeled....steamed, with lots of butter, a bit of salt and pepper...ummmmmm! :D

Oh, and answer to the original question...noodles are just fine too....cooked, then add butter, salt, pepper, and a touch of fresh minced garlic, and a dash of parsley.

Well now, since there are so many wonderful suggestions for sides to meatloaf I'll just have to drop by everyone's house (not on the same night of course!) and do a little taste test. ok??

At our house it's definately mashed potatoes usually with peas or corn or creamed corn. Put a piece of of meatloaf on fork, scoop in mashed potatoes, then smoosh in the peas so they adhere to the mashed potatoes - kind of like a casserole on a fork! :roll:

Foods that go with meatloaf. depends what time of year it is. For me I prefer meatloaf with potato, pumpkin or parsnip in the colder seasons and with salad and beetroot in the warmer seasons. But I do agree with some of the others when they say that meatloaf goes with most vegies. Carnt go wrong really.

Yuppers, I think meatloaf can go with just about anything. it's even good cold on gooey white bread with a good slice of Cheddar or American cheese!

anyway, sides for meatloaf. if you want to go with potatos, maybe try roasting them in a bit of olive oil, garlic and rosemary. or maybe a mixture of roasted vegetables, carrots, squash, sweet potato, parsnip, even some red peppers and zuchinni if you want. or you could go with just some steamed green beans, brocolli and such. i guess heaps of stuff goes with meatloaf. it depends on your personal tastes...
good luck
