In the Kitchen: Skinny Taste mashed potatoes and meatloaf

Skinny Taste has done it again!  I made this dinner last week and it was a fantastic, comforting meal on a chilly day.  Please visit her site to see her presentation...she made the most darling meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato icing.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup grated zucchini, remove all moisture with a paper towel
2 tablespoon onion, minced
1/2 cup ketchup
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt

Mashed Potatoes:
1 lb yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 large garlic cloves, peeled and halved
2 tablespoons fat free chicken broth
2 tablespoons fat free sour cream
1 tablespoon skim milk
1/2 tablespoon light butter
1 tablespoon dried thyme (recipe actually calls for 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme)
salt to taste
ground pepper

Put potatoes and garlic in a large pot with salt and enough water to cover and boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer until tender.  Drain.  Add other ingredients and mash until smooth.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 350*.  Grease a loaf pan.  In a large bowl mix beef, zucchini, onion, breadcrumbs, ketchup, egg, and salt.  Place meatloaf mixture in pan and bake uncovered for 30 -35 minutes or until cooked through.
