Ingredients

For the Meatloaves:

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup finely chopped or grated onion
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs optional
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup marinara sauce or bbq sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (smoked is fantastic!) optional

For the Sweet Potatoes:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes cut into coins
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp oil

For the Green Beans:

  • 1 lb green beans washed and trimmed if necessary
  • 1/2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

For the Meatloaves:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Spray a standard 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray or line with silicone muffin cups and set aside.
  • Place meat in a large bowl. Add onion, eggs, panko, salt, pepper.
  • Use your hands to gently combine. Do not over mix!
  • Press the ingredients into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Top each mini meatloaf with a dollop of marinara sauce, store-bought or homemade BBQ sauce and shredded cheese, if using.

For the Sweet Potatoes:

  • Line a baking sheet with foil and grease with oil or spray with cooking spray
  • Toss sweet potatoes in oil, salt and pepper. Add other seasonings if desired.
  • Spread in one layer on tray, leaving room for green beans

For Green Beans:

  • Toss in oil and seasonings and spread in single layer on prepared baking sheet
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until meatloaves are cooked through and a thermometer registers 160 degrees F.
  • Check veggies for doneness. Place back in oven for 5-10 minutes if you would like your sweet potatoes to crisp up a bit more.

Notes

For Instant Marinara Sauce:
Combine 1 cup of tomato sauce with 2 tbsp Italian seasonings, salt and pepper to taste. Mix in a bowl and use to top meatloaves. No heating required!
