A note about serious food allergies

Jalapeño and cheddar are great combined on appetizer plates, and they're great here, turning Grandma (or Ma's) meatloaf into something with a little more oomph and jazz. The cheese goes in, adding to the flavor and texture of the loaf. And the jalapeño jelly goes on the outside, coating the loaf with sweet slight heat. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2, 3, and 5, baking until heated through 15-20 minutes.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2, 3, and 5, baking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Carrot

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot on an angle into 1/2" slices.

    Place carrot on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven, 10 minutes.

    While carrot roasts, make meatloaves.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatloaves

    Finely crush crackers.

    In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, crushed crackers, cheese, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form mixture into two evenly-sized meatloaves.

  3. 3

    Roast the Carrot and Meatloaves

    Carefully, remove baking sheet from oven and push carrot to one side. 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.

    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 demi-glace, 1 tsp. water, and jalapeño jelly. Microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds. Stir to combine and set aside.

    In another 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 remove baking sheet from oven and add peas to 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!
