Mini Meatloaf with Roasted Cauliflower Mash

Meatloaf is another one our favorite dishes that we have not had in a while. Mainly because we usually have a carb as a side dish (mashed potatoes.) Well, I was browsing on Pinterest one day and found an alternative to the famed mashed potatoes, Cauliflower mash...who knew! So, sticking with the theme of trying new dishes this year, I am embarking on the Cauliflower mash journey today.
