Igloo Meat Loaf

In the Jan. 1967 Family Circle I found a five page spread by the American Dairy Association - Kid-Pleasin' Meals start with the basic 4 food groups. Most of the ideas were ordinary but the Igloo Meat Loaf really stands out. The suggested menu was Igloo Meal Loaf, Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole, Gelatin Salad, Sour Cream Dressing, Rolls, Butter, Cinnamon Apple Crisp ,Vanilla Ice Cream and Milk

Igloo Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf:
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
6 tablespoons instant minced onion
2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1-1/3 cups evaporated milk
Potato Frosting:
1-1/2 cups water
2/3 cups evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 envelope (3-1/2 oz.) instant mashed potatoes
Cheddar cheese slices
To prepare Meat Loaf: In a bowl lightly mix ground beef, crumbs, onion, salt, pepper and evaporated milk just until blended. Pack firmly into a 1-1/2-quart bowl; turn out of bowl onto a shallow baking pan. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. To prepare Potato Frosting: In a 1 -1/2-quart saucepan combine water, evaporated milk, salt and butter; bring just to boiling. Remove from heat; with whip or fork stir in potatoes; whip briskly. Frost loaf with potato mixture. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Place Cheddar cheese slices on top of Igloo; return to oven just until cheese starts to melt. Serves 6 to 8

I remember this kind of dish vividly -- we were always doing creative things with meat loaf and mashed potatoes. Makes me feel all secure just looking at the photo!

I love that igloo! It would not please my kids though, in reality.

That is the cutest meatloaf I have ever seen. I have to make this just for the sheer fun of it.
