Everything you need to make a double batch of my Potato Wedges recipe
Everything you need to make my Meatloaf Meatballs recipe
Your favorite bagged salad kit

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Follow the directions to make my Potato Wedges recipe and put them in the oven. Except for the cooking temperature, follow the directions to make my Meatloaf Meatballs recipe. Approximately 20 to 30 minutes before the potatoes are done, put the meatballs in the oven, too. They can bake at the same temperature as the potatoes instead of 350 degrees. When the potatoes are golden brown and the meatballs are cooked through, serve with a side salad.
