If you looked up the definition of comfort food in a kitchen dictionary, you'd probably find a picture of a meatloaf in all its homey glory! There are so many delectable ways to prepare this classic, but few are more full of flavor than this one which has a potato surprise at its heart. Serves 6

1 cup (21/4 oz) instant potato flakes
2/3 cup hot water
1/3 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon dried fine bread crumbs
1 teaspoon chili seasoning
1 cup (one 8 oz can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce
16 oz ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/3 cup (1 1/2 oz) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar Cheese
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar Twin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with olive oil-flavored cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine potato flakes, water, sour cream, and parsley flakes. Mix well and set aside. In a large bowl, combine onion, green pepper, bread crumbs, chili seasoning, and 1/2 cup tomato sauce. Add meat. Mix well to combine. Pat half of mixture into prepared loaf pan. Spread potato mixture evenly over top. Pat remaining meat mixture over potato mixture. Stir Cheddar cheese and Brown Sugar Twin into remaining tomato sauce. Spoon sauce mixture evenly over top. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Place loaf pan on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Cut into 6 servings.
