Two of my most popular recipes on C&L to date have been one-pan-pasta & sweet-potato hash, and it doesn’t take much investigation to figure out why. Easy recipes win out — especially ones of the one pot/pan/skillet variety. So, this week I’m truly trying to keep it simple & give you some easy weeknight meals that I stand behind!
We all want simple, delicious meals that come together in less than an hour & taste like you’re paying to eat out — I promise, I’m right there with ya! I also realize my recipes on the blog are usually a place for me to try new flavors, techniques, and things that are a little more special than what you’d fix on a typical Tuesday night. But this week isn’t a fancy layer cake, signature cocktail or 18-ingredient dinner — I bring you, SHEET PAN MEALS!
These mini meatloaves were inspired from a HelloFresh meal we had a while back — they cook up in no time compared to a normal family-sized meatloaf! The potato pieces steam up nicely in their pouch for easy mashed potatoes. Roasted green beans are always delicious, but you could also sub for broccoli, asparagus, or another favorite green veggie. I hope this sheet pan meal brings some variety and simplicity to your next week's meal plan!
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Coat a large piece of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray; place potato cubes on foil. Drizzle potatoes with water; wrap foil around potatoes, sealing tightly. Place foil packet in one corner of the sheet pan. Coat rest of sheet pan with cooking spray.
- Place breadcrumbs, onion, 1½ tablespoons ketchup, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, garlic, beef, and egg in a large bowl; mix well to combine. Divide mixture into 2 equal portions. Shape each portion into a freeform loaf on sheet pan. Spread remaining 1½ tablespoons ketchup evenly over meatloaves. Bake meatloaves and potatoes at 425°F for 15 minutes.
- Combine green beans and oil, tossing to coat. Remove pan from oven. Arrange green beans on pan around meat loaves and potatoes. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes or until meatloaves register 165° on a thermometer. Remove pan from oven.
- Carefully open foil packet. Place potatoes in a bowl. Add milk, butter, and remaining salt/pepper to taste. Mash with a potato masher or fork to desired consistency. Sprinkle remaining salt & pepper on green beans to taste.
