Meatloaf Balsamico

with Sweet Potato Mash and Green Beans

Read more

There’s nothing wrong with the classics, and meatloaf is about as classic as you can get. But since we’re all about keeping it fresh, we figured there also wasn’t anything wrong with giving it a twist. That’s why we’re adding a layer of balsamic ketchup glaze on top. It’s a simple way to upgrade your ’loaf, especially when it’s served with green beans and mashed sweet potatoes.

1

Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Mince 1 clove garlic (2 cloves for 4 servings). Chop parsley. Halve and peel onion. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate one onion half into a large bowl (both halves for 4 servings). In a small bowl, combine 1 TBSP vinegar (all for 4 servings) and ketchup.

2

Add minced garlic, parsley, 1/4 cup panko (we sent more; use all for 4 servings), beef, and ¾ tsp salt (1½ tsp for 4 servings) to bowl with grated onion. Season with pepper, then mix with hands to combine. Shape into two 1-inch-tall loaves (four loaves for 4 servings), then place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush with ketchup mixture. Bake on middle rack until cooked through, about 25 minutes total (we’ll check on them after 10 minutes).

3

Meanwhile, peel and dice sweet potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Place in a medium pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to pot.

4

Once meatloaves have baked 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven. Toss green beans on same sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. (For 4 servings, toss green beans on a separate baking sheet.) Return to oven and roast until meatloaves are cooked through and green beans are tender and slightly crisped, about 15 minutes more.

5

Mash sweet potatoes in pot with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth. (TIP: If potatoes have cooled, quickly reheat over medium-low heat.) Add 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) and honey. Continue mashing to combine and melt butter. Season generously with salt and pepper.

6

Once meatloaves and green beans are done, sprinkle almonds over green beans and toss to combine. Divide meatloaves between plates and serve with sweet potato mash and green beans on the side.
