Volcano Meat Loaf

This was a hit in our house today.  A friend mentioned she can't imagine anybody who don't like meat loaf except her kids.  Mine are both as picky too.  I got this from Mr. Food and they cleaned off their plates.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 a 10-1/2-ounce can condensed cream of tomato soup
  • 1 (1-ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups warm mashed potatoes

  • What To Do:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, tomato soup, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, egg, and water; mix well.
    3. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal amounts and shape each section into a miniature volcano mountain. Place in the baking dish and bake for 1 hour, or until cooked through.
    4. Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees F. "Frost" each volcano meat loaf with mashed potatoes, creating a crater in the potatoes at the top. Return the volcanoes to the oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until the mashed potatoes are golden.
    • Serving tip: Let the kids fill the craters with gravy or ketchup to make lava flows from the tops of their volcanoes
