I like to bake some side dishes in the pan with the meatloaf, almost like a pot roast, so they give each other flavor. I would suggest quartered potatoes with the skin on, carrots, and onions (leave small or medium onions whole; quarter large onions). You can either mix all of these together and serve them as a single dish, or have three different rows in the pan so that you can easily scoop them out as three different sidedishes. Whether mixed or separate, put a layer of vegetables at the bottom of the pan, then put the meatloaf on top of it and bake.
By the way, if you were already planning on mashed potatoes, it's okay to have these potatoes, too. They are different enough to be a separate dish.
I also like to have cottage cheese with meatloaf.

I always have baked potatoes when I make meat loaf. Another option would be boiled potatoes with mushroom gravy. Had that with my pork roast for Christmas and everyone was happy with that. Twice baked potatoes would be great. Baked beans would be a good side dish to serve. A cheesy potato would be yummy as well.

Roasted potatoes tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, dried herbs and roasted for 45 mins on 350.
Puree of Cauliflower with a touch of heavy cream and salt, blended with a hand mixer or food processor.
Sweet Potato Mashed, with a tsp. brown sugar, salt/pepper, and 1 pat of butter, mixed with a hand mixer
Salad with lots of good stuff in it
Sauteed mushrooms with some onions
Cheesey grits (make quick cooking grits and add in a few chunks of Velveeta -- it is to die for!!!)

EGG NOODLES WITH SOUR CREAM
8 oz. egg noodles
1 c. sour cream
2 tbsp. butter
2 green onions, chopped
1 c. Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
Cook egg noodles and drain. Melt butter in large saucepan. Add 1 green onion, sour cream, cheese and nutmeg. Add to egg noodles; toss lightly to coat noodles. Sprinkle remaining green onion on top.
**A vegetable medley (broccoli, carrot, cauliflower) could also accompany your meal. ENJOY!!

Many simple dishes:
~macaroni and cheese (shells are preferred)
~dinner rolls or biscuits
~black eyed peas
~peas in general
~simple salads compliment the meat loaf
~brocolli (w/ or w/o cheese)
In North Carolina, USA, this is considered a SOUTHERN dinner.Source(s): my momma (lol)

fruit grows on forest or vines and fresh vegetables grow in the land.

Normally i would just say fruit, but i think both. I like the sweet taste of the fruits but i love the tart and kick the produce bring
