There are many variations of meatloaf. Just about everyone has put their own twist to the recipes. They are all good for a main course meal to be sure. But most of us know that when the leftover meatloaf is stored in the refrigerator overnight something magical happens. The next day the meatloaf is ready to make the most wonderful sandwiches. If you make a sandwich with meatloaf fresh out of the oven it is good to be sure but it is definitely not the same. It has to chill overnight to make the best sandwiches.
With this recipe you can make five meatloaf patties without having to heat the oven to make an entire meal-sized meatloaf. It has most of the traditional meatloaf ingredients but is grilled. Additional flavor comes from the crackers. The pureed vegetables make for a smooth meat mixture that doesn’t fall apart. Make a batch and store in the fridge. When the urge strikes, slater a bun with mayo, add a slice of tomato and some lettuce and you have a delicious meatloaf sandwich in short order.
Somne years ago I started making these for my late father-in-law. They would tide us over between meatloaf meals.
