Cheddar-Studded Tex-Mex Meatloaf Patties, Scallion Smashed Potatoes, and Spicy Pan Gravy
Matt rating **1/2
Plain bread crumbs
Sharp cheddar cheese
As you can tell from Matt's rating, this turned out to be a near-disaster! This was a take-off from a master recipe and I had to go back and forth between the two. The directions were incorrect/incomplete so I ended up not using all the ingredients that I should have in the meatloaf patties. Had I done everything correctly, I think this would have turned out much better. I tried to salvage it by topping the meatloaf with the cheese, since I didn't add it beforehand, but alas, it was a tad bit too late. I should have reduced the heat from what the directions said, but was too busy prepping other ingredients to notice that the meatloaf patties turned out really well done. At least I made it to over 30 recipes before we had a bad one! Oh well, on to the next one!
