  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup cooked lentils
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup dry Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup Bob Evans 100% liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. Crystal Farms® shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
  • 1 pkg. (20 oz.) Simply Potatoes® Rosemary Garlicup


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Mix beef, lentils, onion, breadcrumbs, Bob Evans egg whites and ¼ cup marinara sauce, cheese and oregano until well blended. Shape into 6 mini loaves. Place 1 loaf on each foil sheet; top each with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce. Place about ½ cup potatoes around each loaf.
  2. Bring up edges of foil, folding to seal and allowing enough space for heat circulation and expansion.
  3. Place packets on a large baking sheet; bake 30 to 35 minutes or until internal temperature in center of loaves reaches 160°F and potatoes are tender.
