mini meatloaf with green beans... 40 minutes

the goods:
(quantities listed are for 1 mini meatloaf - duplicate as many times as needed)
1 tablespoon plain dried breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons milk
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 tablespoons grated cheddar
1 scallion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons finely grated carrot
4 ounces ground beef
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 ounces green beans, trimmed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine breadcrumbs, milk, ketchup, cheese, scallion, carrot, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add beef and gently combine. Transfer mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and form into a 2 and 1/2-by-4-inch loaf. Bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat oil over medium. Add green beans and 1 tablespoon water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until water is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
