This is what we had for supper 2 nights ago. Oh. My. I had forgotten how good these are!
We had meatloaf leftover from Saturday night. Usually, eating leftovers just as they are, without any recreation, suits us just fine. We do it almost daily for our lunches. I happen to be a MEGA fan of leftovers. Meatloaf may be our one exception.
It’s not really that we have anything against regular ole meatloaf. In fact, Caleb & I both enjoy it quite a lot. But, once you get a taste of one of these A-MAZ-ING sandwiches, there’s no going back to plain ole meatloaf leftovers. I’m quite certain making meatloaf sandwiches with our leftover meatloaf is usually what I’m most looking forward to when making meatloaf. I suppose I could make a meatloaf & immediately turn it into meatloaf sandwiches……hmmmm, now there’s a thought…
I don’t have a meatloaf recipe posted here at OGFL yet. To be honest, I make it different every time & I don’t really measure anything. This last one I made was pretty tasty though, so I’ll try to recreate it next time & put it here. In the meantime, if you don’t already have a standby meatloaf recipe, there are oodles to pick from online. This one looks pretty easy. Or, even better, use your grandma’s recipe. One way or another, find some leftover meatloaf & make these sandwiches. You won’t regret it
(to make 2 sandwiches)
2 slices leftover meatloaf
4 slices sandwich bread (I happened to have some homemade Challah hiding in the fridge, but we usually use homemade wheat)
2 think slices cheese (I used white cheddar because that’s what we had)
Melt butter (enough to cover bottom of pan) in a skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, brown meatloaf slices for 3-4 minutes on each side. You want the slices to be heated through & browned up.
Assemble sandwiches by spreading mayo on each slice of bread, top with cheese & then browned meatloaf. Butter the outside of your sandwiches & return the sandwiches to the skillet. Use a grill press if you have one, or another pan to help press sandwiches down & together. Brown both sides of the sandwiches.
Remove from pan & enjoy the deliciousness!!
