The Ultimate Meatloaf Grilled Cheese Sandwich
1 pound of ground beef
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 slices of your favorite bread
8 slices of cheese (cheddar or American work well)
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, milk, diced onion, diced bell pepper, minced garlic, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and black pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Form the meat mixture into a loaf shape and place it on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 45-50 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place four slices, buttered side down, on a griddle or large skillet over medium heat.
Layer each bread slice with a slice of cheese and a few slices of meatloaf. Top with another slice of cheese and cover with the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.
Cook the sandwiches for 3-4 minutes on each side, until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Remove from the heat, slice diagonally, and serve your Meatloaf Grilled Cheese Sandwiches hot and gooey. Enjoy the comforting flavors and the delightful combination of textures!
