Meatloaf Sandwich and Weekly Menu Plan

Here is a childhood favorite of mine that I rarely get a chance to make anymore since it seems that there is never any leftovers. I took care of that when we fixed meatloaf for dinner the last time; I made extra just so I would have enough for a Meatloaf Sandwich.

The great thing about making a meatloaf sandwich is that it’s frugal and can save you some time when you are in a pinch for a quick meal. I’ve come to enjoy them in many forms, a simple sandwich to a gut busting experiment with mashed potatoes and gravy for toppings.

However this time I decided to create my sandwich with a sweet and savory theme. I started out by slicing the meatloaf fairly thick, 3/4 inch seems to make a hearty amount. Then I topped it with a thick slice of my favorite cheese, Muenster and added a handful of onion straws I made using the same batter as I do for our Fried Green Beans.

To hold my sandwich I decided to use a multigrain ciabatta roll that I had brushed the interior with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt.

I grilled all this on a cast iron griddle I had preheated in a 325F oven. Then served with bread & butter pickle chips. Mmm,Mmm, goood!

  1. Oh, I’ve seriously never thought of a meatloaf sammy!
    (Muenster is my fav cheese btw. When I was little I called it Monster Cheese.)

    Those fried onions look amazing, too!

    As you can tell from last week’s post on Sausage Gravy, I’m not the most healthy conscious cook. But, I’m frugal – and sometimes ground turkey chubs go on sale. I recently made a turkey meatloaf using crushed cornbread croutons in place of breadcrumb and lots of sage and thyme. It was pretty good meatloaf – for being tossed together from pantry items :)

    I bet it would have made a great sandwich!

    This sounds wonderful , love meatloaf and meatloaf sandwiches . I am thinking of making this with fried summer squash from your batter as a topping in place of the onions.

    Oh no you didn’t!!! You just kicked up my favorite sammich another notch by adding onion straws!!! *drools*

  4. This is probably a dumb question, but… do you grill in the oven on the griddle? Or do you remove the griddle after preheating and finish on the stovetop?

    • Hi Barb,

      To answer your question after preheating the griddle I place the griddle on the stovetop over medium heat and cook the sandwich until it is heated through. Thanks for your question.
