Best way to make a meatloaf sandwich - Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Yesterday, we made a delicious meatloaf covertly filled with healthful ingredients like ground turkey and handfuls of veggies. Today, we have a few leftovers, as you might, too. If you don’t want to have the same meal two days in a row, try these delicious sandwiches.

Use your favorite type of bread and add a couple slices of Turkey Meatloaf with Vegetables, extra cranberry glaze and mayonnaise. Stack your sandwich and serve it with sweet potato chips. If you want to eat it cold, you can; it’s delicious this way. Or, if you’d rather serve it up hot, toss the meatloaf slices into a frying pan or onto an indoor grill to sear in even more flavor and add a crispy texture to the loaf. You could even toast the bread. Customize the sandwich until it’s perfect. No matter how you make it, we’re sure you’ll love this meatloaf – whether it’s on a plate or on a sandwich.

Tomato Basil Soup and Grown-Up Grilled Cheese (with bacon!) from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

 

Tomato soup is one of those foods that immediately conjures memories of my childhood. My parents would heat up canned tomato soup and serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich made of white bread and American cheese. It wasn’t particularly fancy, but it was good, old-fashioned “kid food” and my brothers and I loved it. As I got older, I realized I wanted something more than the basics, something that offered more flavor and more texture, but it was hard to find. This is the closest I’ve come in a long time to tasting a tomato soup that offers a sophisticated balance of flavors and textures, while still summoning those great childhood memories. Everyone in the family is sure to love it, and the slow cooker makes it that much easier to put an incredible meal on the table tonight.

The grilled cheese was upgraded, too, with some of our favorite foods. Try making your next grilled cheese on a panini grill with avocado and bacon, and I know you’ll agree this is the best fall meal you’ve had this year. Enjoy!

This week, we’ve shown you two easy ways to cook a whole chicken. If you didn’t eat that whole chicken in one night, you probably have some leftovers and need some ideas to spice them up. Here are two easy dishes, based on what we like to do with our own leftovers at home. The first is a simple curried chicken salad that won over the “no-grapes-in-my-chicken-salad-please” crowd with it’s fresh, vibrant flavors and unique Indian twist. The second is a sandwich my dad used to make with chicken and turkey leftovers. It’s very basic, but surprisingly delicious.

Leftovers Chicken Sandwich

To make the leftover chicken sandwich, use two pieces of bread, your leftover cooked chicken or turkey, lettuce, mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Toasting the bread is optional, but adds a nice texture to the sandwich. Spread both pieces of bread with mayo and add the lettuce. Top with your leftover chicken (or turkey) and add salt and pepper to taste. Close the sandwich, lift to mouth, bite and enjoy!
