actually, i was thinking to avoid bread and cheese as they are salty. but a little cheddar never hurts. maybe a little sauteed shallots, too.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing about the cheese Bucky, but I figure with all the potato I should be OK (I hope). Maybe I will make a test one first to see how it works with the cheese and if it is still too salty I will leave it out of the rest.

If you are a sour cream eater, I still vote for that to offset the salt. Would be good in the tater.

Unfortunately, I am not. i agree that would have been perfect for this problem. I wish I liked it, but it is just not something I can eat

I forgot to give an update.

I used Bucky's suggestion. I chopped the meatloaf up as fine as I could. I then baked some potatoes and when they were cooked I cut them in half and scooped out the flesh. I mixed the meat and potatoes together with a touch of shredded cheese. This mixture was then spooned back into the potato skins. I over filled them so there was a mound on top of each skin about double the size of the half, so it looked about the size of the potato when it was whole. These then went back into the oven for about 10 minutes. They came out great! The salt from the meatloaf and cheese was just right to season the salt-less potatoes. I am very happy we were able to save the meatloaf that my wife worked so hard to make.

may i have one, please?
that does sound good. i'll have to try it the next time we have meatloaf leftovers.

gb, your wife learned 2 good cooking lessons: to be careful adding salt, and how to rescue a meal.

That's good to hear GB but don't be giving Bucktom a cape or anything, it might all go to his head!

No cape, but he is more than welcome to a potato

i tried tying one to my utility belt, but that didn't look right either...
