Look, it may be basic. It may not be something you shout about making in culinary school. (We wouldn't know; liberal arts major woot woot!) But good gravy is gravy good. Rich demi glace and fiery garlic pepper, thickened with a bit of flour… yum. Pour it over the meatloaf, and prepare yourself for a yummy, basically perfect dinner.

Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Start the Meatloaves
Thoroughly combine ground beef, half the ricotta (remaining is yours to use as you please!), panko, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Form mixture into two equally-sized ovals.
Place meatloaves on one side of prepared baking sheet.
Roast in hot oven, 8 minutes.
Meatloaves will finish cooking in a later step.
While meatloaves roast, prepare cauliflower.
Prepare the Cauliflower
Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces.
In another mixing bowl, combine cauliflower, 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Roast the Cauliflower and Meatloaves
After 8 minutes, carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Add cauliflower to empty half of baking sheet, spreading into a single layer. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.
Roast again in hot oven until cauliflower is tender and meatloaves reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 10-12 minutes.
While cauliflower and meatloaves roast, make sauces.
Make the Gravy
Place a small pot over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add flour to hot pot and stir until no dry flour remains.
Then add ½ cup water, demi-glace, and garlic pepper. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, stir often until gravy is smooth and slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Make Cheese Sauce and Finish Dish
Place another small pot over medium-high heat and add ¼ cup water, cream cheese, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, stir often until mixture is smooth and thickens slightly, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in cheddar cheese until fully melted.
