RECIPE: Meatloaf Balsamico


A tasty, healthy, quick and easy meatloaf recipe - who doesn't love comfort food on these (somewhat) cold winter days?

Be sure to read the entire recipe before getting started!

2 cloves garlic
1/4 oz parsley
6 oz green beans
1/2 yellow onion
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
10 oz ground beef
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp ketchup
1 sweet potato
2 tsp honey

1.  Wash and dry all produce.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Mince or grate garlic.  Chop parsley.  Trim green beans.  Halve and peel onion and then use box grater to grate one half into a large bowl.

2.  Add garlic, parsley, panko, beef and 1/2 tsp salt to same bowl.  Season with pepper, then mix with hands to combine.  Form into two 2-inch-tall loaves and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.  In a small bowl, mix 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and ketchup, then brush onto meatloaves.  Bake in over until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes total.

3.  Peel and chop sweet potato into 1/2 inch cubes.  Place in a large pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 2 inches.  Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.  Drain and return to pot.

4.  After meatloaves have baked about 10 minutes, remove from oven.  Toss green beans on same baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.  (I did this in a bowl beforehand and then just added to the baking sheet.)  Return to oven and cook for about 15 minutes more.

5.  Mash sweet potato in a pot with a form or masher until smooth.  Add 1 tbsp butter and honey.  Continue mashing to combine.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Plate and eat!!
