Coach's Stack

I had just made Shay's Meatloaf the night before, and I used the leftover meatloaf to create another dish from her blog... the base is a garlicky Texas Toast topped with a slice of meatloaf, which is topped with homemade mashed potatoes.

I had already made the meatloaf the night before, and had leftover baked potatoes (which I quickly mashed with some butter and heavy cream). I love dishes that are versatile, and this was easy and tasty.

  • 1 lb ground beef (used 85% lean, but may use 90% lean next time)
  • 1 cup Saltine cracker crumbs (that's about 12 crackers) (used whole wheat Saltines)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup (will cut down to 2/3 cup next time)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar (will cut down to 1/4 cup next time)
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Mashed potatoes (homemade or store bought)
  • Texas Toast (baked, this is our favorite)
  • French's fried onions (garnish)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix ground beef, cracker crumbs, eggs, onion, salt, 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce,  and tomato sauce in a bowl.  
  3. Put in  a greased 9x9 inch baking dish, bake 60 minutes. (Toss in foil-wrapped baked potatoes simultaneously.)
  4. Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in a bowl.  
  5. Once 40 minutes is up, top casserole with sauce and return to oven for 15 minutes.
  6. To assemble the "stack", place a piece of baked Texas Toast on your plate. Top it with a slice of meatloaf, and then some mashed potatoes on top. Garnish with fried onions.
