This week is the last of my four week series on 30 Minute Meal ideas! I showed off my Beef Enchilada Pasta Bake, Easy Swedish Meatballs, and my Chicken and Stuffing Veggie Casserole! Finally today we’re wrapping up with a Mini Meatloaf Dinner idea with mashed potatoes and green beans, as seen on the back of the Campbell’s Soups for Easy Cooking carton! There’s a local restaurant that we go to that has amazing meatloaf that’s piled on top of green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy, so today I thought I’d recreate the same idea!
1 Campbell’s Soups for Easy Cooking Sweet Onion soup carton
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, then mix together beef, bread crumbs, egg, and 1/4 cup of soup in a large bowl. Season with salt or pepper or add other items like cheese if you so desire (I think everything tastes better with cheese!).
2. I separated the mixture into six mini meatloaves and lined the bottom of my baking dish with the remaining sweet onion soup, then placed the meatloaves into the pan.
3. Bake meatloaves for 30 minutes until cooked through. While meatloaves are cooking, prepare your mashed potatoes and green beans.
4. Once they come out of the oven, layer your mashed potatoes, green beans, and then meatloaf on top. Use the excess Sweet Onion soup for gravy! And enjoy!
The whole process takes about 30 minutes to make and is a quick and easy clean up! I’ve found a new favorite dinner recipe to replace the one at my local restaurant and instead of tons of seasoning, I just rely on the Campbell’s Soups for Easy Cooking to do the heavy hitting for me!
