Easy Meatloaf
Good base recipe. I use half ground pork and half ground beef. Finely chopped onion and a couple garlc cloves in food processor, then sauteed in a little extra virgin olive oil. Italian bread crumbs with romano cheese. 1T worcestershire sauce. Mound mixture in center of lightly greased 9" square baking dish and surround with peas (I use steam-in-a-bag, prepared). Cover meat with 3x catsup/mustard mixture and only a tablespoon or 2 of brown sugar. During baking process, I periodically mix peas so they don't dry out. I serve with Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes (sometimes adding blue cheese, cheddar, or garlic to them).

Brown Sugar Smokies
One of 3 appetizers we made for a party of 12 people. Made 2 packages (approx 70 smokies), and guests were disappointed there weren't more. Had a hard time finding smokies at grocery stores (New Jersey), but found 4 different varieties in grocery section at Walmart (in Pennsylvania). CHEDDAR SMOKIES were far tastier than regular beef variety. Used hickory flavored bacon, cut into thirds. Poured half a bag of dark brown sugar into a baking dish and dredged each piece of bacon, making sure to press generous amounts of brown sugar onto each side before wrapping around smoky. Used wooden bbq skewers, leaving just enough space between smokies to ensure they didn't stick together. Placed in long glass baking dish, then generously sprinkled more brown sugar on top before covering dish in plastic wrap and refrigerating overnight. Recoated smokies in brown sugar sauce from baking dish, then placed skewers on broiler pan on center rack in oven at 375 degrees, approx 12 min on each side. Removed from skewers and placed toothpicks for easy handling by guests. As a dipping sauce, quadrupled topping from Easy Meatloaf recipe from this site: 1 1/3C Catsup, 1/2C deli mustard, a couple of tablespoons brown sugar. Nothing like the aroma of bacon to make your guests ravenous when they step foot into your house. Men, especially, couldn't wait to duplicate recipe.

Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes
Watched video before following his directions. The mashed potatoes were the perfect, fluffy consistency. I've served them just as the recipe suggests, but I've also amended them with blue cheese, cheddar cheese, white pepper, and garlic. This recipe gives you a great foundation for a versatile side dish.
