Meatloaf sides?

Ugh, my dad's favorite dish is meatloaf, lol, so that is on my father's day menu....not very exciting for someone who loves to cook for guests, but it is what it is. Anyway, he doesn't like mashed potatoes or mac n cheese. What sides would go well with meatloaf other than those?

  • you don't seem excited about the meat loaf... have you thought of spicing it up a little? Ever put ham and cheese or broccoli and cheese in the middle? Give it kind of a new flare this time?

  • "new flare" and "my dad" don't go together, lol. He likes a basic good old fashioned meat loaf. I'm not thriled about it, but is Father's Day so he gets what he likes, that is more important than my menu planning enjoyment =) Maybe I'll do some mushroom rice or roasted potatoes and a salad or veggie, thanks!

  • Mashed Potatoes and corn or carrots, any veggie.

  • Well crap...if I see meatloaf I automatically think mashed potatoes. Lol If he likes brocolli try it roasted with garlic ,olive oil, and red pepper flakes. It is SO good. Sauteed mushrooms, roasted potatoes, buttered rice, salad, rolls...
