Meatloaf Parmesan Sandwiches
(using Leftover Beef or Turkey Loaf)
Make in any amount
Leftover meatloaf can be reheated as is, perhaps with a little tomato sauce, or used cold in regular sandwiches. See the similar and related recipes on the full page view linked above for more ideas, as well as my favorite recipes for meatloaf and turkey loaf. This recipe is probably my favorite presentation for using the leftovers because I love sandwiches, especially hot sandwiches for dinner. Meatloaf sandwiches are quick and easy enough for a busy weeknight and absolutely delicious.
- Store-bought or homemade marinara sauce
- Sliced leftover meatloaf
- Crusty sub rolls
- Sliced cheese of choice
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Hot pickled peppers (optional garnish)
Heat a little of your favorite marinara sauce in a skillet large enough to hold the sliced meatloaf in one layer. Add the meatloaf, cover, and heat over a low burner until warm.
Meanwhile, halve the rolls horizontally and remove some of the inside bread to form boats. Toast the insides under the broiler. When the meat is warm, place slices on the bottom rolls. Top with a little sauce, then some cheese, such as mild mozzarella or, if preferred, a good sharp provolone, then a little more sauce and some freshly grated Parmesan. Return to the broiler just until the cheese is melted. If desired, top with hot peppers, then the tops of the rolls, and serve. Yum!
