This warm and wonderful soup uses up leftover potatoes and leftover meatloaf. If you don’t happen to have leftover potatoes, cook 2 large baking potatoes in the microwave and use those. It comes together very quickly and makes a hearty meal, when served with a salad. Best of all, no one is going to realize you’re making leftovers. Not a single person at my dinner table could identify this as having meatloaf in it, even when we had had said meatloaf the night before! Just call it Potato and Hamburger Soup and no one is the wiser.

I have never heard of this. My hubby’s two favorites are meatloaf and potatoes. I’ll be making this dish tonight. Thanks!
Well I hope not, since I just made it up! I hope he enjoys it!
Neat idea. I love potato soup.
This sounds like a great winter dish!
This is a fantastic idea. Much better than leftover meatloaf sandwiches.
Yes, I am not a fan of those.
I’d probably have to add some minced green pepper since I can’t eat onions, but otherwise this is a brilliant idea. And just before you asked, I was thinking how much I liked the recipe plug in. I suppose you’ll be putting in your contract that I have to provide one of those at A Traveler’s Library for your column! 🙂
By the way, I do love meatloaf sandwiches, so it will be a struggle to save some meatloaf for the soup!
That would definitely work as a substitute.
My 4yr old son just said he wanted meatloaf souo. I told him there was no such thing. Thank you for proving me wrong! We will definitely try this although we rarely have leftover meatloaf. It’s a household favorite!
