Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich

Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich

Basil-Tomato Meatloaf Sandwich

The best thing about meatloaf, next to that first piping hot forkful, is the leftovers. Use the Old-fashioned Meat Loaf recipe for dinner, then save the leftovers to make this tasty brown-bag treat for tomorrow's lunch. Top a couple slices of meatloaf with a homemade basil spread. It's so good, you'll want to double the recipe.
Prep: 10 min. You'll love the flavor boost when you stir fresh basil into mayonnaise. If you're uncomfortable chopping the basil, snip it with scissors or chop it in a mini-processor. Because the meatloaf slices are not very wide, it takes two to cover a slice of bread.
Yield: Makes 4 sandwiches


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • hearty white bread slices 
  • (1/2-inch-thick) cold meatloaf slices 
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce 
  • plum tomatoes, sliced 
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. 1. Stir together 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil. Spread 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise mixture on 1 side of each bread slice. Top 4 bread slices, mayonnaise sides up, evenly with meatloaf slices, shredded lettuce, and tomato slices; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Top with remaining bread slices, mayonnaise sides down.
  2. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Sara Lee Honey White Bakery Bread.
