Monday's Leftovers: Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich

Monday's Leftovers: Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich

One of the reasons I love making meatloaf is for the scrumptious leftovers. A meatloaf sandwich with all the fillings is just as tasty as the original meatloaf! For extra flavor, jazz up store bought mayonnaise with chopped basil. Although the recipe doesn't call for it, I would definitely add some shaved Parmesan to this sandwich. It's delicious served cold for lunch and divine when warmed up for dinner. To get the recipe please


Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich
From Southern Living magazine

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
8 hearty white bread slices
8 (1/2-inch-thick) cold meatloaf slices
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Stir together 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil.
  2. Spread 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise mixture on 1 side of each bread slice.
  3. Top 4 bread slices, mayonnaise sides up, evenly with meatloaf slices, shredded lettuce, and tomato slices; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Top with remaining bread slices, mayonnaise sides down.

Makes 4 sandwiches.

I think this looks good! But. A) I don't like shredded lettuce in a sandwich (I know, I'm crazy), and b) the recipe calls for 8 slices of meatloaf for 4 sandwiches, but obviously only needs 4. This almost makes me want to make a huge meatloaf for the leftovers - damn my husband and his need to "lose five pounds" and his wanting to eat healthy this month.

That picture isn't exactly appetizing :( But at work, we have an awesome meatloaf sandwich (the meatloaf has a bit of curry powder which makes it even better) with bacon, cheddar and roasted tomatoes. It's deliciousss on a crusty fresh roll.
