Meatloaf with mashed potatoes & green beans
- 2 lbs ground beef (I used 85/15)
- 1/4 cup diced carrots
- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 1/4 cup diced red pepper
- 1/4 cup diced celery
- Worcestershire sauce
- Ketchup (I used The New Primal- linked below)
- Dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
- 1 egg
- Olive oil
- Salt, pepper, dried italian seasoning, onion powder & garlic powder
- 5 lbs white potatoes (I used redskin potatoes)
- 8 oz sour cream
- Green beans
For the meatloaf:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine diced carrots, red peppers, onion & celery in a large bowl with the egg,
worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, 1 tsp olive oil, and 1-2 tsp of salt, pepper,
italian herb seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. Add ground beef and mix
with hands until well combined. Form into a loaf shape and bake in a greased loaf
pan (I used olive oil) at 325 degrees for about an hour or until meat is cooked through.
For the sauce:
Mix 1 tbsp of honey, dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce and ketchup. Cover meatloaf
with sauce after it has finished it first 20 minutes of bake time.
For the mashed potatoes:
Peel and cut potatoes and boil until fork tender. Drain potatoes then add to a mixer with
2-3 tablespoons of butter, 8 oz of sour cream and salt & pepper to taste. Mix until smooth (potatoes will be thick...if you prefer to be thinner then add milk)
For the green beans:
Add green beans to a pan and saute over medium heat with butter salt and pepper until
cooked to desired texture.
This recipe will make roughly 4-6 portions and take about 90 minutes from start to finish.
Make this dish your own by removing adding any of the veggies used or subbing
cauliflower rice for the bread crumbs and cauliflower mash for the mashed potatoes
to keep it low carb.
