Idahoan Baby Reds with Peas:

  • 1 (4 ounce) package Idahoan® Baby Reds Flavored Mashed Potatoes

  • ¼ cup half and half

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • Scallions, green parts, finely chopped

  • 1 cup fresh peas or frozen peas, thawed

Spring Meatloaf:

  • 1 ½ pounds ground lamb or ground beef

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 slices white bread, crusts trimmed

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

  • ¼ cup fresh mint, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling


  1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place the meat in a large bowl and season liberally with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, soak the bread in the milk, then crumble the bread into the meat. Mix the scallion whites, parsley, mint, garlic, egg, lemon zest and a healthy drizzle of olive oil into the meat. Using your hands, form 4 mini loaves about 1 1/2-inch thick or shape into one large loaf.

  3. Place the meatloaf on the prepared baking sheet and roast in the oven until cooked through, about 15-18 minutes. Prepare Idahoan Baby Reds following package instructions. Stir in half and half, butter, scallions and peas. Serve hot with meatloaf.
