  • 2 Pasture-Raised Eggs
  • ¾ lb Carrots
  • 1¼ cups Panko Breadcrumbs

Prepare & roast the potatoes
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line two sheet pans with foil. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Transfer to one sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 27 to 29 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the ketchup and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Evenly coat one side of the remaining sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the beef, eggs, Italian seasoning, garlic paste, tomato paste, half the breadcrumbs (you will have extra), and half the parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, gently mix until just combined. Transfer to the oiled side of the sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Transfer half the spicy ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside for serving. Evenly top the meatloaf with the remaining spicy ketchup. Roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.
