Mini Honey-Mustard Meatloaves with Roasted Potatoes
Our cute twist on meat and potatoes will have the little ones clamoring for more. Panko breadcrumbs, which blend right in and lighten the texture of these meatloaves, can be found in the Asian-foods section of the supermarket.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for baking sheet
- 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon honey mustard
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 pound ground beef chuck
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
- 1 cup shredded white cheddar (about 4 ounces)
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1 pound white new potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
- 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
- 1 head Boston lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with oil. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons mustard and ketchup.
In a medium bowl, combine beef, egg, panko, 1/2 cup cheddar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Form into four 2-by-4-inch loaves; place on baking sheet. Brush with mustard mixture; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar. On another rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
Transfer meatloaves to upper rack of oven, and place potatoes on lower rack. Bake until loaves are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets after 10 minutes. Remove loaves from oven; continue to roast potatoes until tender, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together remaining tablespoon oil, remaining teaspoon mustard, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Add lettuce to bowl, and toss. Serve meatloaves with potatoes and salad.
