They were a hit at the party as measured by the fact that there were none left to bring home! The meatloaf I had made was actually, Korv, or Swedish Potato Sausage. When I made it for Christmas, I had far more meat than needed to be cooked and so shaped the excess into a loaf and froze it for another night. Korv is sweeter than typical meatloaf, and is quite delicious.
The recipe below is my version of the recipe my grandmother handed down. She would stuff it into sausage casings and then boil them in salted water for about 25 minutes. We find it easier to make and eat as a sliced round loaf. I bake it in a double French loaf pan.
Swedish Potato Sausage/Meatloaf
3 lbs. ground beef
2 lbs. ground pork or use Jimmy Dean pork sausage for more flavor
2-3 lbs. ground raw potatoes or use 2 boxes of dehydrated potatoes which have been further crushed and then reconstituted with very hot water before using
1 large can sweetened condensed milk
1 onion, finely chopped or 1 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. allspice
If you use plain ground pork add the following spices:
2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. pepper
Mix all ingredients together. Shape into logs and bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees F or until a meat thermometer reaches 170 degrees F.
