Grandpa's Meatloaf with Roasted Potatoes
1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
1 c. plain dry breadcrumbs
1/4 c. dry quick oats
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. ketchup
2-3 T. brown sugar
1 medium onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1/2 large or 1 small green pepper, diced
4 servings of fingerling or red new potatoes
4 T. butter, in 1 T. pats
1. Mix all ingredients, except for the potatoes and butter, together in a large mixing bowl. Form into a loaf in a 9"x13" baking dish.
2. Place fingerling or new red potatoes in the dish around the meatloaf. Top with the 4 tablespoon pats of butter.
3. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Remove cover and bake for 30-40 minutes longer, until the top is browned, and the potatoes are tender. Serve with ketchup on the side, if desired.
Note: The peppers, onions, milk, and eggs were all local too!
