Potatoes sliced thin, and covered in an egg, cream, and cheese mixture. A pinch of nutmeg for that little background taste that you know it’s there, you just aren’t sure what it is……that’s nutmeg in any cream dish.

Put the meatloaf on the bottom of a baking dish, cover with the potato mixture and into the oven. A little more cheese once the potatoes are tender and the meat is cooked throughly and you have…Scalloped Meatloaf Casserole.

  • 1 pound gold potatoes, sliced thin
  • ½ cup shredded swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions

  3. In a large bowl whisk together cream, egg, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in ¼ cup shredded swiss cheese and potatoes, making sure to coat potatoes evenly.
  4. Remove potatoes and place on top of meatloaf mixture in an even layer. Pour remaining liquid over potatoes.

  6. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup swiss cheese. Return to the oven uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese. If you prefer your cheese more golden brown, place under the broiler for several minutes.
