Meatloaf Sandwich Recipe Help

Posted by on Feb. 12, 2013 at 11:13 AM

My basic meatloaf recipe is 1# ground chuck (85-90% lean), 3/4 cup bread crumbs, 1 egg, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, catsup topping. I usually make 2-3# meatloaf. My seasonings vary with basil, oregano, savory, s&p, OR rosemary, thyme, and sometimes garlic, onion, & celery.

The leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches do not make really good sandwiches. Should I switch from bread crumbs to crushed saltine crackers or cornflakes?

Should I do a beefy mushroom topping with melted Swiss?

 The spices I add to my meatloaf are chili powder, cumin, red peper flakes, garlic, salt and pepper.  I top it with a mixture of ketchup, brown sugar and dry mustard....it's got a little kick to it.  It makes great leftover sandwiches.

I think I'd stick with the dried bread crumbs.  And a mushroom/Swiss topping would be AWESOME!  May have to switch mine up next time:)

I'm not a fan of traditional meatloaf so the mushroom topping with melted Swiss sounds wonderful.

 If you want it to hold together better, add another egg. If you mean the flavor is blah, increase your amount of  seasonings. I like the idea of mushroom & Swiss topping, but I don't think that will relate wll to making them as sandwiches.

I like to use oatmeal (quick oats) in place of bread crumbs, but my mom uses saltines.  You might also experiemnt with different sauces instead of catsup, bbq sauce makes a good meatloaf and last time I made it with pesto and that was delicious.

You're right about using mushroom/Swiss on a sandwich. I'd probably have to make "open face" style and no one likes that kind.

I soak some plain oatmeal with a little water with oinion soup mix and use that instead of breadcrumbs. Makes it pretty moist and flavorful.

You can also use flavored crackers or flavored croutons in place of bread crumbs or saltines.
