yeah they do sound really good too. Typical me, I've gone from no clue to having so many ideas I'm stumped and we may well end up with grilled cheese for dinner because I can't decide!

Haha well it sounds like you wanna stick to potato with your meatloaf (and really why would you change that :P) roasted would be your easiest bet. You can get alot of similar flavour to mashed potatoes, but you get those really nice crispy edges.

Place medium egg noodles on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F until they are a rich brown color. Careful, they burn fast once they start to brown. Cook the browned noodles, drain and toss with butter, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with grated parm if you like.
What does this do to the taste? Or what is the reasoning if it doesn't change the taste. Very interesting sounding.

Cheesy potatoes!! The one thins Velveeta really makes well.

Velveeta cheese, milk and butter--make a thick cheese sauce. Pour over boiled, cubed potatoes... put in a pan and bake until the top is slightly browned.. Yummy!!!!! but absolutely terrible for you..

Augrautin potatoes are another good choice as is rice or cous-cous..

I tend to enjoy a starch along with meatloaf..

Think of the deep brown part of a potato chip - that's what I'm imagining. Kinda nutty tasting.

Actually I think it's a federal law in the United States that you're supposed to serve mashed potatoes with meat loaf. However, since I'm a bit adventuresome, I tend to break the law from time to time.

I, occasionally, serve buttered poppy seed noodles with meat loaf. Just cook up your favorite noodles, we use curly noodles, drain, then add some butter to coat. Toss in some salt and a good bunch of poppy seeds. Toss to coat well and serve. Yummy.

The noodles have a richer nuttier taste than just plain buttered noodles. It's worth a try.
