Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Baking Sheets
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Large Pot
  • 1 Small Pot

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Meatloaf

    Combine liquid egg, ¼ cup milk (reserve remaining for mashed potatoes), meatloaf seasoning, ground beef, 1 tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper in a large mixing bowl.

  • 2

    Bake the Meatloaf

    Place ground beef mixture on a prepared baking sheet and use wet hands to shape into a loaf approximately 9" by 5". This recipe card should cover it by about 1" on all sides. Brush with ketchup and bake until meatloaf reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 50-60 minutes. Rest 5-10 minutes before slicing. While meatloaf cooks, make potatoes.

  • 3

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    After meatloaf has baked 20-25 minutes, peel potatoes and cut into 1" dice. Bring a large pot with diced potatoes covered with water and 1 tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, 17-20 minutes. Drain in colander, return to pot, and mash with butter and ½ cup milk, adding additional milk 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with salt, cover, and set aside. While potatoes simmer, roast beans.

  • 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    After meatloaf has cooked 45 minutes, trim ends off green beans. Place green beans on second prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and ½ tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer and roast until beans are just tender, 12-16 minutes. While beans roast, start gravy.

  • 5

    Make the Gravy

    Mix 2 cups water into cornstarch. Place small pot over high heat and add demi-glace and cornstarch mixture to pot. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, 3-4 minutes. Demi-glace has plenty of seasoning; no need to add salt.

  • 6

    Plate the Dish

    Cut meatloaf into 1 ½" thick slices and serve on a plate with mashed potatoes, beans, and gravy.
