Mini Meatloaves with Green Beans & Potatoes

6 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine September/October 2014

This healthy meatloaf recipe and side dishes are all made in the oven on two sheet pans so that everything's ready for the dinner table at the same time. The potatoes go into the oven first to start roasting while the mini meatloaves and green beans are prepped and added to the oven partway through.

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold or red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound lean (90% or leaner) ground beef
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup Italian-seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425 °F. Coat 2 large rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Combine paprika and 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add potatoes and toss to coat. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil, toss again, then spread the potatoes in a single layer on one of the prepared baking sheets. (Reserve the bowl.) Place on the lower rack to roast for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine beef, egg, onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire and 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt and pepper in the large bowl. Form the mixture into 4 small loaves about 2 by 4 inches each and place on the other prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the remaining 1 tablespoon ketchup. Remove the potatoes from the oven and put the meatloaves on the lower rack.
  4. Toss green beans with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Move the potatoes to one side of their pan and add the green beans to the other side. Roast the vegetables on the upper rack until the green beans are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meatloaves registers 165 °F, 20 to 30 minutes more.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

Healthy meatloaf at last! The roasted potatoes were tasty although mine cooked in less time than stated in the recipe. I made the meatloaf according to the directions but shaped it into a traditional loaf rather individual loaves. I added ten minutes to the cooking for the meatloaf and it came out great. Also, I served steamed green beans rather than roasted, a family preference. Great recipe overall. Pros: Easy

Great recipe! I've made this recipe several times and my family loves it. If you have picky eaters, put less spices on the potatoes. The meatloaves are tasty and the roasted green beans and potatoes make a nice meal. Pros: Complete dinner ready at once. Cons: No leftovers.

Super Easy, last minute meal I made this in a last minute time crunch because I had all of the ingredients on hand already. I followed the recipe exactly, and am pleased with the meal. Will definitely be making it again, and may perhaps try a new twist on it! Pros: You have most ingredients in pantry Cons: You have to have everything prepped beforehand because it all goes in pretty much at one time

Easy to make...Tasty Result...Method Needs More Detail I made this dish and loved all of the tastes but agree that specific cooking times would be helpful rather than meanwhile as it is written since I like to do all my prep ahead of time. I melded this recipe with other EW Mini Meatloves recipe (using oatmeal instead of bread crumbs) and added a bit of BBQ sauce in with the ketchup. Also used Harissa on taters. Yummy!! Pros: Very tasty, easy clean up, everything ready at once Cons: No timelines in recipe

Recipe instructions lack clear timing Step 2 says start roasting the potatoes. Nowhere does it say how long they should be in while Step 3 is being done. I like to be leisurely while cooking, so even with everything prepped (chopped, trimmed, etc, but not mixed up), Step 3 took me about 12 minutes. I have the same problem with Step 4. It took me about 5 minutes. If I had not trimmed the green beans first, it would have been much longer! Well-written recipes should be unambiguous in terms of measurements, methods, and timing. When I went to make it, I was shocked that the times were not included, and was rather worried the whole time I was making it, whether I was doing the right thing. I marked up my own copy to include 12 minutes elapsed time for Step 3 and 5 minutes for Step 4, and I ended up roasting it closer to the 30 minutes for the final stage. I am marking this recipe as Great and Recommended because of the taste, not because of the way the instructions are written! Pros: Roasting produces delicious results Cons: Recipe did not include complete unambiguous timing information
