Meatloaf Sandwich

Meatloaf Sandwich

The best part of making meatloaf is the next-day leftover meatloaf sandwich!

The bread

We want the bread as a means of holding the meatloaf, that’s it. We don’t want anything with a strong flavor to compete with the meat. And we don’t want grains or seeds interfering with the texture of our sandwich. Use plain white bread, preferably thick cut and lightly toasted of course.

 

The sauce

We’re going with a simple and robust combination of ketchup and steak sauce. This sauce is strong, but not rich. Add as much, or as little as you’d like, that’s the best thing about building your own sandwich!

 

You add cheese?

Yes! Cheddar please, from the deli and thinly sliced. It works really well, with the meat and with the sauce.

 

Lettuce and tomatoes

We need to add a little freshness and crunch to our sandwich. Let’s go with iceberg lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Meatloaf is not fancy; it’s good old-fashioned comfort food so we’ll keep the ingredients for this sandwich basic. Just make sure the lettuce is fresh and crisp and the tomato is ripe and juicy.

 

Hot or cold?

Is this a hot sandwich or a cold sandwich? That’s up to you really. You can heat the meat in a nonstick skillet until warmed through, or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds. Be sure to handle the slices gently so they don’t break. You can also add the cheese so it melts too, or place it on the already hot slice so it warms and barely melts (that’s what we did).

 

The meatloaf

Now, I know just about everyone has their favorite recipe. Maybe you developed it through the years, or you got it from your Nana, either way it’s your recipe and you’re sticking to it! And, that’s great, I’m sure it will be delicious in this sandwich. If you don’t have a favorite recipe yet, give this turkey meatloaf a try. It’s moist, flavorful and won’t disappoint!

Now all that’s left to do is to build your sandwich and enjoy!
