First, you need to make the meatloaf.

The Best Meat Loaf Sandwich Recipe

You will need…
2 lbs lean ground beef {we substituted bear meat because we had that on hand}
1 10 oz can condensed tomato soup
2 onions, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cracked black peppercorns
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups fine dry bread crumbs
1 slow cooker liner – we recommend the Debbie Meyer Slow Cooker Liner
1 slow cooker – We recommend the 8 qt LUX 3-in-1 Multi-Cooker

How to prepare…
1. Line your slow cooker with the Debbie Meyer Slow Cooker Liner.
2. In a large bowl, combine all of the food ingredients and mix well.
3. Shape into a loaf. This doesn’t have to be perfect – mine sure wasn’t. Lol.
4. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours {we did high for 4.5 hours} and make absolutely certain it’s done. You can do this by using a meat thermometer and making sure that the center has reached 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

5. Grab the slow cooker liner and lift out the meat loaf, careful not to spill the juices or the meat loaf. If there is a lot of juice {there wasn’t in mine} you can put the slow cooker liner and meat loaf in a bowl and then lift the meat loaf out and put on a plate. Then tie up the slow cooker liner and let cool. Then discard.

This recipe, “Mom’s Meat Loaf” was excerpted from the cookbook 175 Essential Slow Cooker Classics by Judith Finlayson.

Next, time to make the sandwich.

You will need…
The tasty meat loaf that you just made
Shredded Cheddar Cheese to taste
A couple slices of French Bread
Toaster Oven – We recommend the Panasonic Flash Xpress Toaster Oven

How to prepare…
1. Put two slices of french bread into the toaster oven and toast 1 side and then remove from toaster oven and place on plate, toasted side down.
2. Sprinkle cheese on both pieces of french bread and toast again, cheese side up.
3. Add a nice size piece of meat loaf to one slice of toast and put the other on top. Voila!
4. Enjoy!

Panasonic Flash Xpress Toaster

We have been using the Panasonic Flash Xpress Toaster for a while now and love it. Why? As, empty nesters, it’s great to make sandwiches and heat up other small food items. It also doesn’t heat up your whole house. I mean, I definitely don’t want to get the oven hot just to make a meat loaf sandwich. Know what I mean? We also added aluminum foil to the tray to make it easier to clean. Easy peasy.

I also love that it preheats quickly and takes up very little of our counter space since we don’t have much to begin with. This would be perfect for someone with a small kitchen like ours or someone who likes to cook very little like me. ;)

Fagor LUX 3-In-1 Multi-Cooker

Speaking of my small kitchen, it’s great to have an appliance that can serves several purposes. The Fagor LUX 3-In-1 Multi-Cooker is a slow cooker, pressure cooker and rice cooker all in one. It can also do yogurt which makes it a bit more than 3 in 1. :) I love that the lid locks on and that it is super easy to clean. The pot comes right out and can be put in the dishwasher! It also turns off if the multi-cooker is moved. So, I think this is the best appliance like this available for those with small kids.

    I really like that you can remove the inner pot for dishwasher washing….so easy. Quick and easy cooking and clean up. I like using my slow cooker and can’t wait to try out all the features.

  2. That is such a cool toaster oven! I love that it’s not huge. I don’t have a ton of counter space, and the toaster oven I have now is shoved on a shelf in another room where I forget it exists. The Multi-Cooker would come in really handy too!

  3. Oh yum! This looks easy and delicious. Love the cooker!

  4. Shannon Tate says:

    I LOVE this cooker! 3-in-1! How can you beat that!? And the added yogurt feature is so useful for me. I like to make my own quirky flavors and test them out on my family :)

    Meatloaf sammiches are THE BEST! I’m a meat and bread kinda gal, so just give me those two things and I’m GOOD! A little sharp cheddar never hurts, though.

  5. This cooker sounds awesome! Your sandwich is huge! Thanks for the recipe.

  35. Julie Waldron says:

    I would probably choose the champagne color. I’m not a meatloaf fan, so I don’t like meatloaf sandwiches. My husband does though & he likes mayo on his.

  36. That is one serious sandwich. I love a good meatloaf, especially one that tastes better the second day. This looks like the perfect comfort food for this time of year.

  37. Never had a meatloaf sandwich before and this looks really delicious, such a lovely giveaway too and good luck to those entering

  38. The features I like best about this Fagor LUX Multi-Cooker are that it functions as other appliances too (yogurt? count me in!) and that the pot is dishwasher safe. Love it! Oh, and I think the champagne color is pretty cool, too.
