Everything miniature tends to be better, and that stands true for this Mini Meatloaf Sheet-Pan Meal. If the juicy, sweet, and ketchup-y mini loaves aren't convincing enough on their own, knowing that they take less than an hour to bake should do the trick. And if that isn't enough, they are accompanied by aromatic garlic and olive-oil-smothered potatoes and asparagus–so no brainstorming of sides is necessary. Mini Meatloaf Sheet-Pan Meal, we thank you. Not every hero wears a cape.
Ingredients• 2 eggs, lightly beaten • 1 cup tomato juice • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, 90% lean • 1/4 cup ketchup • 3 tablespoons brown sugar • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, divided • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and halved
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, tomato juice, oats, onion, and salt.
Add the ground beef to the egg mixture and mix lightly, but thoroughly.
Shape the meat mixture into six 4x2-1/2-inch loaves.
Place the loaves on a sheet pan or large shallow roasting pan.
Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and nutmeg in a bowl.
Brush the ketchup mixture over the tops of the 6 loaves.
In a mixing bowl, combine the potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, tossing to coat.
Next to the loaves, add the potatoes in a single layer on the pan.
Bake for 25 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine the asparagus with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, tossing to coat.
Take the pan from the oven and add the asparagus next to the potatoes and loaves.
Bake the dish until a thermometer inserted into the meatloaves reads 160 degrees F and the potatoes and asparagus are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
Let the dish stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Plate and serve.
