Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the glaze, spread the brown sugar over the bottom of a greased loaf pan and spread the cranberry sauce over the sugar. In a large bowl mix all the remaining ingredients until well incorporated. Form the meat mixture into the loaf pan, laying out over the cranberry glaze. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour, (be sure to assemble and cook the potato gratin along with the meatloaf, as they have the same cooking times). Turn out the loaf and set aside.
MIXED BEANS ALMONDINE:
Blanch beans in boiling, salted water for 1 minute and then shock in an ice water bath. When ready for dinner, toss the beans with walnut oil, salt and pepper and slivered almonds and place on a baking sheet and place in the oven with the meatloaf for the last 10 minutes before the meatloaf comes out.;
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season potatoes with salt and pepper and layer in buttered 2 inch deep baking pan. Bring the rest of the ingredients to a boil and pour over the potatoes while hot, until potatoes are almost covered. Bake at 400 degrees until tender, about one hour.
To assemble the dish, slice the meatloaf into 1 1/2-inch thick slices, and plate with a nice square of the potato gratin, and the beans along side. Serve everything warm.
