How to Make a Meatloaf Sandwich

  • First, In a frying pan or on a griddle reheat your slice of meatloaf over medium heat. Heat each side for about three minutes. This seals in the meat’s juices and heats the meatloaf slice through. This is necessary so you don’t have a soggy sandwich.

  • Next, Spread Mayo on one side of each slice of bread. The Mayo side will go face down on the frying pan. 
  • Lay one slice of bread, mayo side down, on your cooking surface. Next layer on 1 slice of cheese, meatloaf, then another slice of cheese. Finally, add the other slice of bread, mayo side facing up. 
  • Finally, Let the sandwich toast on the frying pan for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Different cooking surfaces will have different cook times. While cooking use a spatula to lift one corner of the sandwich to make sure the bread is not burning. 

Your sandwich is done when the cheese has melted and the bread is toasted with a golden color.
