squzie, my wife makes a kind of homefries to go with her meatloaf.

it's the same as if you were gonna make mashed, but instead of adding butter and milk and mashing the cooked chunks of taters, she just tosses them with salt and pepper.
i like to add some paprika, herbs, and minced shallots. when available, i also like to drizzle in some melted maple bacon grease.

It may stay potatoes, but rice sounds pretty good too. It would be something new thats for sure!
Maybe just a different kind of potato, then they are not mashed BUT I also don't break up meatloaf and potaotes all together, and my world will still turn. :)
Any idea how much longer potatoes take to roast at 350 (or meatloaf temp) than they do at 400 - 450? I would think they would take at least and hour or more. I always do them pretty high with nothing else in the oven.

Not much longer. They will cook with the meatloaf and be ready when the meatloaf is. The difference is that at the higher temp, they will crisp up a bit.

You could always put them up the grill for a few minutes at the end ofcooking to crisp them up.

I would go for boiled new potatoes or small salad potatoes (such as pink fir apple) tossed in some seasoned melted butter, or evoo for the more health conciuos.

When you take out the meatloaf to rest before carving, turn on the broiler and let the potatoes crisp up there.

Even better, thanks Andy. No shoveling with that method.

I'll make mac'n'cheese with my meatloaf on occasion. Another potato dish we like is a hash brown casserole. It's very close to the one served at Cracker Barrel. Also I like to make baby reds. I boil the baby reds in salt water (a cup of salt in two quarts of water) and when they are done drain. the salt will crystallize on the skins and it is the perfect amount. Serve with a bit of butter and sour cream.

HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

2 lbs frozen hash browns (shredded not cubed)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 c. melted butter
2 cans cream of chicken soup (can sub celery soup for vegetarians)
1/2 c. chopped onion
1-1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 pt. sour cream
Potato chips

Partially thaw potatoes. In large mixing bowl mix potatoes,salt, pepper, butter, soup and sour cream. Stir in onions and cheese. Place in greased 9x13 baking dish, Sprinkle top with crushed potato chips (I like to use sour cream onion chips) Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 mins.
