2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the potatoes

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Scrub the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half crosswise; cut any large halves in half.
  • Coarsely chop the rosemary. 

On a sheet pan, toss the potatoes with the rosemary and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until tender, golden brown, and starting to crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the meatloaf.


Assemble the meatloaf

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Set aside half the BBQ glaze for serving.
  • Lightly grease a sheet pan with oil.
  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

In a large bowl, using a fork or whisk, blend the egg with the onion, meatloaf spice blend, and panko and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the ground meat and mix until just combined. Transfer the meat mixture to the prepared sheet pan and form into a 6-by-2-inch loaf [2 loaves]. Spread half the BBQ glaze evenly on top of the meatloaf. 


Bake the meatloaf

Bake, rotating the pan halfway through, until the meatloaf is browned on top and cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes; a metal knife inserted into the center for 30 seconds should come out hot to the touch, or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should register 160°F. When the meatloaf is almost done, prepare the kale.


Prep and cook the kale

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. 
  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Working in batches if needed, add the kale, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the meatloaf, potatoes, and kale to individual plates. Serve the remaining BBQ glaze on the side.
