Meatloaf Patties & Smashed Potatoes

(family favorite, been making them since at least 2003)

My husband won't eat meatloaf shaped like meatloaf for some reason but he loves this:

Meatloaf Patties & Smashed Potatoes
Rachel Ray, Food Network

1 1/3 pounds ground sirloin -- 90 percent lean
1 slice white bread -- spread butter, cut in small cubes
1/8 cup milk
1 egg
2 teaspoons grill seasoning blend
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 rounded tablespoon tomato paste
1 medium onion -- finely chopped
Smashed potatoes
2 pounds small red potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup milk

Place meat in a large mixing bowl and create a well in the center of the meat. Fill the well with the bread cubes and dampen them with a splash of milk. Pour 1 beaten egg over bread and add seasoning or salt and pepper, allspice, tomato paste and onion to the bowl. Combine the meat, bread and grill seasoning or salt and pepper and form mixture into 4 large oval patties 3/4-inch thick. Pan fry meatloaf patties in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat 7 minutes on each side under a loose tin foil tent. The tent will reflect heat and allow the steam to escape the pan.

Cover the quartered, red-skinned potatoes in water in a medium saucepan. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes 10 minutes or until fork tender. Turn heat under pan off; drain potatoes and return to hot pan and warm stovetop to dry potatoes out. Add butter, sour cream,, and milk to potatoes and smash to your desired consistency.
