A note about serious food allergies

Parmesan and marinara together, and you're immediately assuming pasta. We say "ground beef" and you make another assumption: ah, probably meatballs. But no! We're throwing the tomato-y sauce on a moist meatloaf, as well as nutty salty good Parmesan, and baking it all to perfection. This is what happens when you assume! (You get a delicious dinner? We're going to have to rethink our sayings.)

Cooking Guidelines

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 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming 4 loaves and working in batches, if necessary.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1, 2, and 3, roasting 9 minutes, adding Brussels sprouts, then roasting again until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 12-16 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking 16 minutes, adding Brussels sprouts, then roasting again until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 12-16 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). In a mixing bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, 2 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and red pepper flakes (to taste).

    In another mixing bowl, combine half the panko and 2 Tbsp. water. Let sit, 1 minute.

    After 1 minute, add ground beef, Italian seasoning, half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for topping), 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Form mixture into two equally-sized ovals.

  2. 2

    Start the Meatloaves

    Place meatloaves on one side of one prepared baking sheet. Top meatloaves evenly with marinara, then remaining Parmesan.

    Roast in hot oven, 6 minutes.

    Meatloaves will finish cooking in a later step.

  3. 3

    Finish Meatloaves and Brussels Sprouts

    Remove meatloaves from oven. Place Brussels sprouts on other half of baking sheet. Spread into an even layer, cut-side down.

    Roast in hot oven until Brussels sprouts are tender and meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 12-16 minutes.

    While meatloaves and Brussels sprouts roast, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Toast the Garlic Bread

    Cut each ciabatta half into 4 triangles. Spread butter evenly over ciabatta. Place on second prepared baking sheet.

    Toast in hot oven until golden brown, 5-7 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, slicing meatloaves, if desired, and adding any leftover marinara from baking sheet. Bon appétit!
