Today i am opening a new category on my food blog- non vegetarian main course! I am so excited and already have a few recipes to share with you. We will start with this delicious glazed meatloaf with sweet potatoes and green beans recipe.
For me, pretty much any meatloaf recipe reminds of a traditional Russian meatball, we call it “kotleta”. The only difference is that we sear kotleta on a pan with oil, but meatloaf it baked in the oven. Just that one little difference puts meatloaf in to a healthy category.
Its also very important what you garnish your meatloaf with. Ideal will be fresh vegetable salad with just an olive oil dressing and a pinch of salt. But if you prefer your garnish to be a cooked meal- mashed sweet potatoes and green beans is definitely a great choice! Try this delicious combination and let me know what you think in the comments!
