What You Need

  • 1 ½ lbs ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ medium onion, grated
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ pounds new potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

How to Make it

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, bread crumbs, egg, onion, and 2 tablespoons each of the milk and ketchup; season with ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper
  2. On a rimmed baking sheet, form the mixture into a loaf and top with the remaining ¼ cup ketchup. Bake until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until very tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot. Add the butter, the remaining ½ cup of milk, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and mash to the desired consistency.
  4. Bring a second large saucepan of water to a boil; add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool. Serve with the meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
