Well the name Sheet Pan Mini Meatloaves with Potatoes & Green Beans holds the record for longest title on my blog. Whew!
I wanted to add cheesy in there too but I figured I’d be shunned by the Google Gods for having my title be too long. And since the cheese is obvious, I
figured hoped you’d get the point.
Meatloaf…the word is just terrible. I mean I get it. It’s meat in the shape of a loaf but it gets such a bad rap.
When I was a kid. I would turn up my nose just at the sound of it.
For many people, that statement still holds true today. They think back to when their grandmothers would slice into that loaf, plop it on the plate and call it “dinner”.
The thought of it use to gross me out.
As a matter of fact, it still did for me until about 2 years ago when I discovered “the one.”
No, I’m not talking about my husband, we’re going on almost 12 years together, I’m talking about the one meatloaf recipe to change all meatloaf recipes.
When I first started cooking, I’d cook everything my husband liked; chicken fried steak, hamburger helper, tacos with fried shells. I loved it too. I mean who doesn’t love pure comfort food? It’s the kind of food where you sit on your butt binge watching shows all day long.
You can probably sense a theme here that we didn’t eat well and were not active in our early years. Insert 60lb weight gain…for both of us.
Then along came children and long gone were the days of being lazy and indulging in comfort food and long gone are those 60lbs+ Whew!
But I digress. I should write a blog post about how we changed our lives around and chose a healthier lifestyle for us and our children, anyone care to read that?
Lemme know and I can share what worked for us and how we maintain and even indulge a little.
Update, if you want to read a post on How I lost 70 pounds and kept it off, check it out.
Anyways, back to the meatloaf. I use to make meatloaf into cute little muffin cups complete with mashed potato “frosting” and chive “sprinkles” If it looks good, it probably tastes good right? Wrong.
Insert cheesy mini meatloaves. Meatloaf game changer.
Anything is better with cheese, but these meatloaves are stuffed with white cheddar. AND, they’re on the healthier side.
I came across the recipe in Cooking Light, one of my favorite magazines, and knew I had to make them immediately.
If you know anything about me, you know I love cheese.
I couldn’t wait to make them….and then make them again and again.
This meatloaf recipe is absolutely amazing.
Instead of making mashed potato frosting, I thought I’d cut up some baby potatoes and throw them onto the sheet pan with the meatloaves.
And I had green beans so I threw those on there too and Sheet Pan Mini Meatloaves with Potatoes & Green Beans were born.
Not only are these meatloaves stuffed with white cheddar, they also have horseradish in them.
Now, before you click off of this page because you despise horseradish, here me out.
It’s utterly delicious in here. I’m not a huge fan of horseradish myself, but it lends a subtle bite to the meatloaf that sends it over the top. A little somethin’ somethin’ that is so good and you can’t quite but your finger on it. You’ll never make meatloaf without it again.
I also love that this is a one pan plan. I lined my baking sheet with foil and the cleanup was a breeze. Or should I say zilch, nothing, nada. That’s my kind of dinner.
So if you’ve been turned off by meatloaf in the past, give these Sheet Pan Mini Meatloaves with Potatoes & Green Beans a try.
Even my kids love them and THAT says something. I have a very picky 6-year-old and he gobbled these up and your family will too!
