Meatloaf Sandwich with Bacon & Onion on Sourdough Bread- served with oven baked crispy wedge fries. The best way to eat leftover meatloaf.
When I posted the sourdough bread recipe a little while back, I mentioned how good meatloaf sandwiches were on this bread. A reader wrote to ask how exactly I made my meatloaf sandwiches so I decided to post a photo and directions even though it’s more of an instruction for leftovers rather than a recipe. Find our family’s favourite Sweet Onion Glazed Meatloaf here.
This is a good way of stretching leftover meatloaf to make another low-effort meal. Plan to make extra meatloaf and you can have these hot sandwiches with some Crispy Oven Wedge Fries (recipe follows) or a salad a night or two later. Not a bad idea for a quick but substantial work week meal.
The Crispy Oven Wedges recipe is one that belongs in every cook’s standard repertoire. These taste as good as any deep-fried fries I have ever had. Most people assume that they are deep-fried and are surprised to learn that they are cooked in so little oil. The secret is the 3 short minutes that they are par boiled before going in the oven. My kids give these 2 thumbs up!
- 2 slices smoked bacon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 clove minced garlic
- 2 slices red onion
- 2 ounces grated mozzarella or cheddar cheese (optional
- Leftover meatloaf slices
Fry the bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from the pan and set aside.
Drain the fat from the pan and add the olive oil, minced garlic and onions. Saute until the onions are softened.
Add a couple of slices of leftover meatloaf along with any leftover glaze and continue to cook for a few minutes until warmed through, turning the meatloaf once.
Toast 2 slices of sourdough bread.
Top the first slice of bread with the meatloaf, then the onions and glaze.
If you are using cheese, add it at this point and pop under the broiler until the cheese is melted.)
Add the bacon and the second slice of sourdough toast. Add some sliced tomatoes if desired. Cut in half and serve.
