  1. 1

    Start the Carrot

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" slices on an angle. Place carrot on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven, 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Carrot will finish cooking in a later step. While carrot roasts, make meatloaves.

    Make the Meatloaves

    Finely crush crackers. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, crushed crackers, cheese, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form mixture into two evenly-sized meatloaves.

  3. 3

    Roast the Carrot and Meatloaves

    Carefully, push carrot to one side of baking sheet. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Place meatloaves on empty side of baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven on bottom rack until carrot is tender, 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven. Meatloaves will finish roasting in a later step. While meatloaves roast, make sauces.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauces

    Stem dill. Coarsely chop half the dill (reserve half, left whole, for garnish). In a microwave-safe bowl, combine beef demi-glace, 1 tsp. water, and jalapeño jelly. Microwave until warm, 1 minute. Stir to combine and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine seasoning blend, sour cream, 2 tsp. water, and chopped dill until combined and smooth. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Roast Peas and Finish Dish

    Carefully, add peas to baking sheet with carrot. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Bake again until peas are bright green and meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatloaves with jalapeño-demi-glace and vegetables with sour cream-dill mixture and reserved dill. Bon appétit!
