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!

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

  2. 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.
