Yesterday I passed on the "secret" recipe for the Neatloaf at Ananda Fuara and today I'm here to tell you what to do with the rest of the loaf. There are a few obvious ideas, such as a neatloaf sandwich (which is actually quite tasty in between slices of nice crusty bread), broken apart and reheated in a pan with new seasonings and placed inside a taco shell, or crumbled on top of pizza. However the idea that I've come up with is as follows: Neatloaf sandwiches where the neatloaf is the bread. You can either slice up to pieces and fill them with sprouts, tomato slices, cheese, etc. Or you can be a little naughty and bread & fry the slices first. To check out how to do that,
- In a skillet, heat approximately a quarter-inch of oil until shimmering.
- Lightly beat two eggs in a bowl. In another bowl place bread crumbs, panko crumbs, or crushed cereal (same as the one you used in the neatloaf.
- Take the slice of neatloaf and dip it into the egg and then the breading mixture.
- Fry until golden brown. Set on paper towels to absorb excess grease.
Serve as is, or top with sandwich fixins such as cheese, tomatoes, avocado, sprouts, etc. You can top with another slice if desired, but I think I'd personally make mine an "open-faced" neatloaf sandwich.
