There’s just not much to say about this. It’s a Garlic and Herb Twice-Baked Potato stuffed inside BBQ Meatloaf and topped with cheese, bacon, tomatoes and green onions (or anything else you’d like to put on top of a Twice-Baked Potato stuffed inside a BBQ Meatloaf crust).

How pretty is that?

You will need to start by boiling and mashing your potatoes — I personally love red potatoes for just about everything.

I used about 6-7 small potatoes. You will need 4-8 depending on the size and how full you want your pie. Once they’re cooked I mash mine with butter, garlic, herbs and some chicken bouillon for flavour (you don’t want to add more liquid than you need or it’s not going to come out of the pan very easily, so I avoid stock, but like the flavour bouillon adds).

I decided to add a little extra flavour to the meatloaf by adding some BBQ sauce because who doesn’t like a little extra flavour? And why doesn’t like a little (or a lot of) BBQ sauce?

Here in Manitoba, we’re still buried under several feet of snow — as are our barbeques, though I know a few brave souls who have dug theirs out. We’re up for anything that gives us a taste of an early spring.

You really can top this with whatever you want, though bacon and cheese are a must in this house. Who doesn’t like bacon and cheese?

Mashed Potatoes:

  • 4-5 large or 6-7 small potatoes
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic or garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • milk only if needed

BBQ Meatloaf:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic or garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp plus 3 tbsp BBQ sauce


  • shredded cheese
  • green onions
  • cooked diced bacon
  • diced tomatoes


  • Boil potatoes in salted water. Drain and mash with butter, bouillon, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt. I use my food processor to get them nice and smooth. You want to make sure you don’t add liquid unless it’s necessary to mash them, otherwise your pie won’t cut very nicely. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine uncooked beef, bread crumbs, onion, salt, garlic powder, egg and 3 tbsp BBQ sauce. Press into ungreased 9″ pie plate or 9″ square baking dish and up the sides to form the crust. Brush meatloaf with remaining 3 tbsp BBQ sauce.
  • FIll with mashed potatoes.Sprinkle with shredded cheese. (*Note: I find low fat cheese gets dried out if in the oven for long periods of time. If using low fat cheese, you may want to leave it off until near the end. You may want to cover your potatoes with a greased sheet of tin foil to keep them from drying out).
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with tomatoes, bacon and green onions (or any other toppings you want!).

    Sounds delish! What do you do with the mashed potatoes, spread on top of the meat or cheese?

      Oops — sorry! I just realized I’m missing a step. I’ll fix it as soon as i get to the computer. Yes, the potatoes go inside the beef crust before baking and are baked together.

    Love this idea Ashley! And I’m chuckling over your “notorious eyeballer” description 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Karen! I am so bad for guestimating…. the funny thing is, as a food blogger now, I have to actually keep track and write down my measurements!
