the ultimate meatloaf sandwich

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr


We had meatloaf for dinner last night. I made a huge one, using 3 lb. of meat, to insure we’d have leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches! Meatloaf sandwiches are SO good and I personally think meatloaf tastes better the day after you make it. I have several recipes for meatloaf here on my blog, but these are my favorites: Mushroom Meatloaf Supreme, Magic Crock Pot Meatloaf and Amish Meatloaf.

You can add or subtract ingredients as you see fit. Sometimes I add pickle slices to my meatloaf sandwiches and sometimes I don’t. This time I wasn’t really in the mood for pickles, so I left them out. If you like spicy, add some sriracha hot sauce or horseradish to your mayonnaise (I added sriracha this time.)

I really enjoy dressing my meatloaf sandwich like an all American burger, however I don’t consider meatloaf sandwiches to be in the same category as burgers. They’re two totally and completely different things!

Are you ready for the ULTIMATE? 🙂 Here ya go…

for one Ultimate Meatloaf Sandwich:

1 large, soft, fresh hamburger bun (I used a Trader Joe’s 100% Whole Wheat Bun)

2 Tablespoons real mayonnaise mixed with 1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha

2 teaspoons olive oil or butter (to fry meatloaf)

1 thick piece of meatloaf

salt and pepper

kosher dill pickle slices (optional)

a little chopped, fresh onion (optional)

1 slice of melty cheese (this time I used colby jack)

organic ketchup

a couple leaves of fresh, crisp, cold lettuce

1 Tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard

Place bottom of bun on a plate. Mix mayonnaise and sriracha together and spread it on the bun bottom.

Heat oil/butter in a skillet. Once hot, reduce heat to medium and add the thick slice of meatloaf to the pan. Slowly brown it on each side until golden and fragrant. Transfer meatloaf slice to a microwave-safe plate. Place cheese slice on top of meatloaf and heat it in the microwave, just until cheese is melted (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute.) Place cheesy meatloaf slice on bun bottom.

Top with salt, pepper and optional pickles and onions. Add a generous amount of your favorite, organic ketchup and lettuce. Spread the grainy mustard on the inside of the bun top. Place bun top on sandwich and serve immediately.
