I remember when I was a kid, my dad would always make sandwiches out of my mom’s leftover meatloaf. I never had one until I started making meatloaf on my own…..shocking I know, right? I know if I had asked him or mom to make me one, they would have, but I just never did. I was probably off watching Doctor Who, climbing trees, or playing outside with friends (kids don’t do that any more do they?) and never realized just how good those were. Boy was I missing out. So today I’m bringing you a meatloaf sandwich made from the previous Meatloaf recipe that I had made earlier. It has that nice hunk of meatloaf, with cheese, sautéed onions and an over easy egg on toasted Italian sliced bread.
Here’s what you need:
*meatloaf sliced; I used this Meatloaf recipe, but you can use your own
*shredded or sliced cheddar cheese; I used shredded because that is what I had on hand.
*1 egg per sandwich cooked over easy
*1 TBS butter
*1 small onion, chopped
*salt to taste
*sliced Italian bread; 2 slices per sandwich
Place butter in a small sauce pan and heat to medium high heat. When the butter is melted, add the onions and salt. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes, then turn down the heat to medium. Continue to cook while stirring occasionally until the onions are tender and start to turn a golden brown, about 5 to 10 minutes; set aside
Warm up the sliced meatloaf until its warm, but not steaming hot. I just microwaved mine for a few minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°
While the meatloaf is warming, lightly toast the bread. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet. Place one slice of meatloaf onto one slice of bread.
Add cheese on top of the meatloaf.
Put into the oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. While the cheese is melting in the oven, cook the eggs.
Take the meatloaf out of the oven.
Carefully place the eggs on top of the cheese on each slice of meatloaf.
Spoon the onions over the egg.
Top with remaining slice of bread and serve.
