Meatloaf with Green Beans

Total Time:
40 mins

Dressed up with a little cheese, this classic meatloaf is an easy everyday choice. A combination of ground meat and a different cheese would also taste great -- try pork and beef with Gruyere or Monterey Jack cheese.


  • 1 tablespoon plain dried breadcrumbs

  • 2 teaspoons milk

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons grated cheddar

  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons finely grated carrot (from ½ carrot)

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 4 ounces ground beef

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 4 ounces green beans, trimmed


  1. Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, combine breadcrumbs, milk, ketchup, cheese, scallion, carrot, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Add beef and gently combine. Transfer mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and form into a 2 1/2-by-4-inch loaf. Bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat oil over medium. Add green beans and 1 tablespoon water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until water is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Serve alongside meatloaf.
