Side Dish Idea Needed

My family likes meatloaf and since it is easy and economical I make it about 3 times a month. I'm okay with this main dish however I feel a little stuck in a rut when it comes to side dishes to serve with it. We usually have either roasted white potatoes or roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli or peas. My DH is not a fan of lettuce salads so thats out. What do you serve with meatloaf? We use ketchup, not BBQ sauce if that makes a difference.
TIA

Mashed potatoes, carrots & applesauce. Sometimes instead of potatoes we do German spaetzle.

Some idess

Green beans
Mashed potatoes with cheddar
Scalloped potatoes
Sauteed Swiss chard and garlic
Roasted Brussels sprouts
Mac and Cheese ( not the most nutritious option, but yummy)
Riced cauliflower
My kids like the frozen mixed veggies ( peas, Limas, carrots..) I'm not a fan, but it would work
Roasted asparagus

I like my meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy but DH prefers ketchup with his so he would prefer French fries!

Cheesy potatoes--the kind made with frozen hash browns. I make it in the crockpot, but it can also be cooked in the oven.

Homemade mac and cheese

Broccoli rice casserole
