When it comes to comfort food, tonight’s dinner is about as classic as it gets. Our hearty meatloaf blends rich pork with warming spices (like allspice and cinnamon) and Worcestershire sauce. On the side, rutabaga (a root vegetable similar in appearance to a turnip) makes for an exciting twist on traditional mashed potatoes—and highlights the meatloaf’s spices with its sweet and savory flavor. Earthy collard greens, sweetened with a touch of maple syrup, round out the meal.

Bake 22 to 24 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven. Transfer to a cutting board and set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes.
