Meatloaf Burger Recipe with Garlic Potatoes

Yield: 4 Servings

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 ½ pounds small red potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 ½ tablespoons finely chopped parsley, divided
  • 10 ounces ground beef sirloin
  • ½ cup ketchup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 kaiser rolls, halved and toasted
  • 1 small tomato, sliced
  • 2-4 leaves Boston lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and pepper, as needed

1. Roast the Potatoes

Preheat oven to 450° F. Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon softened butter and 1 garlic clove, sliced. Sprinkle generously with Kosher salt and pepper. Roast for 16-18 minutes or until lightly golden and tender, stirring occasionally.

2. Prepare the Meatloaf Patties

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. While potatoes are roasting, prepare meatloaf patties by mixing chopped red onion, carrot, celery, remaining garlic clove (minced), breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon parsley, beef, egg, ¼ cup ketchup, mustard, ½ teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper. Mix brown sugar with remaining ¼ cup ketchup in a small bowl. Form the meat into 2 4-inch patties on baking sheet and top with ketchup mixture. Roast for 18-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

3. Assemble and Serve

Transfer meatloaf patties onto buns, top with remaining onion, tomato and lettuce. Sprinkle roasted potatoes with ½ tablespoon parsley and serve.
