Meatloaf and Baked Potatoes

Recipe thanks to Jessica - Matt normally doesn't like meatloaf; it has to be a very simple one, and this looks like one he'll like. I'll serve it with baked potatoes and a green veggie. I have to tell you the ABSOLUTE BEST way to bake a potato: wash, pierce, and rub butter and salt over the potato. DON'T cover with foil, but bake on a foil lined pan (I just use an 8x8 and sometimes will spray the foil with PAM) at 425 for an hour and a half, flipping half-way. The outside forms a hard shell and the inside is like mashed potatoes - it is SOOOOO yummy! What I'll do with this meal is just cook the potatoes longer since the meatloaf needs a 400 degree oven.

1 ½ lb. ground beef
1 2-oz envelop onion soup mix
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
2 eggs
1 ½ cup saltines, finely ground
1/3 cup water
Directions: Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the beef, soup mix, cheese, eggs and saltines. Add the water combine. Transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish and form it into a 9-inch loaf. Bake until cooked through, about 40 minutes.
