Meat loaf with chive mashed potatoes

Hearty and comforting, this meatloaf uses a mix of lean ground beef and ground turkey breast. The onions and old-fashioned oats add moisture and flavor, but this slimmed-down meatloaf gets a nice dose of flavor thanks to the Worcestershire sauce and some zip from the hot sauce. You can of course omit the hot sauce if you’d prefer a milder dish. The homemade mashed potatoes can easily be made while the meatloaf is in the oven, and Yukon Golds are the ideal potato. They are yellow-fleshed, buttery-flavored potatoes that are waxy enough to have some heft but fluffy enough to make a superb mash.
