One-Pan Mini Meat Loaves with Green Beans & Potatoes

You can make this hearty meat-and-potatoes meal on one sheet pan for easy cleanup!

8 servings
Preparation time: 1 hour


  • 1 ½ pounds fingerling or gold creamer potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • ½ yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup plain bread crumbs
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed



Heat the oven to 400 F with a rack in the center position.

Toss the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Spread them evenly, then
set a wire rack on top.

In a large bowl, gently combine the beef, garlic powder, onion, bread crumbs and ¾ cup barbecue sauce. Shape the mixture into 4
small loaves and place them on the wire rack over the potatoes.

Bake the potatoes and meat loaves for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the green beans with the remaining olive oil and a
pinch of salt.

Remove the pan from the oven. Brush the loaves with the remaining barbecue sauce and scatter the green beans around them. Return the pan to the oven and bake about 12 minutes more, until the potatoes and beans are tender and a thermometer inserted into a meat loaf registers 150 F.
