Pork, rosemary and apple are a match made in heaven. Creamy mashed potatoes are a classic with meatloaf, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. A crisp and crunchy side salad brightens it all up!

Ingredients

20ounces ground pork
2 Fuji apples
1teaspoon dried rosemary
24ounces baby gold potatoes
4ounces mixed greens
1/2cup panko bread crumbs
2stalks celery
2ounces sour cream
2 shallots
3tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2tablespoons butter
2tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place the potatoes in a large pot with a large pinch of salt and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook about 15 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain, reserving ½ cup cooking liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, halve and core 1 apple. Using a box grater, grate the cored apple into a large bowl. Peel and grate the shallots into the same bowl. Add the panko, pork, and rosemary to the bowl. Season with salt (we used 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt) and pepper. Thoroughly combine with your hands and form into four equal-sized loaves.
  3. Place the meatloaves onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake about 20 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. Once the potatoes have been drained, heat 2 tablespoons butter in the same pot you cooked them in. Return the potatoes to the pot along with the sour cream. Mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth, adding as much reserved cooking liquid as necessary to reach a creamy consistency. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cover until the rest of the meal is ready.
  5. Thinly slice the celery on a diagonal. Core and thinly slice the remaining apple. Toss the apple, celery, and spring mix in a large bowl with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the meatloaf on a bed of mashed potatoes, with the salad on the side.
