Swampy Smashed Potatoes
- Mummy Loaf (Meatloaf)
- Witches Fingers with Fleas (Sautéed Green Beans)
- Swampy Smashed Potatoes
First I made your Meatloaf (see the similar and related recipes), without the sauce and after shaping it into a log (I finessed it a bit so you could see the indentations of head, arms and legs) I wrapped it with the bacon slices to make a 'Mummy Meatloaf'. On the side, I served 'Witches Fingers with Fleas', which were frozen whole green beans sautéed in a bit of butter and sesame oil and tossed in a tablespoon of toasted black sesame seeds (the fleas) at the end. And I made 'Swampy Smashed Potatoes', using your Mashed Potatoes and Garlic recipe (in the similar and related recipes). I substituted the small onion with some finely chopped green onion, used small red potatoes instead of the white potatoes and left the skins on, then just smashed them as opposed to a good mashing, and mixed in a small bit of green food coloring.
