Leftover meat loaf makes great sandwiches. Spread slices of French or Italian bread with pesto-flavored mayonnaise, and layer each sandwich with slices of meat loaf and ripe tomatoes, topped with greens.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 lb. ground beef chuck
  • 3/4 lb. ground pork
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 1 cup fine fresh bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

Mix the meat loaf
Preheat an oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine the beef, pork, pesto, bread crumbs, sun-dried tomatoes, egg and salt. Mix gently but thoroughly with your hands. Transfer the meat mixture to an 11-by-7-inch shallow baking dish and form into a rough 9-by-5-inch loaf, then smooth the top.

Bake the meat loaf
Bake until the meat loaf is firm, the top is richly browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 160°F. Let the meat loaf stand in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Divide the slices among dinner plates and serve warm. Serves 4 to 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great spin on an old recipe If you like pesto, you will love this recipe. I added in diced wild mushrooms for some variety. It was a hit with my family!
