Shockingly enough, leftover meatloaf is a thing. I know, I know… I guess some people have self-control when it comes to not eating an entire loaf of meat *drool*. If you’re one of the lucky ones that has leftover meatloaf, but don’t really want the same song and dance of a meal as last night? Thankfully, there’s actually a lot of reinvented meatloaf options. Using the leftovers as the base of an entirely new meal, well – that’s what leftovers are all about! It also might inspire you to make a full recipe meatloaf, even if you’re just cooking for one or two, because if it’s too much food – who cares! You’ve got options, baby.
Simply using chopped leftover meatloaf, you can use it as the base for a really easy chili recipe that definitely use up those leftovers while making a whole new hearty meal you can feel good about.
Simple concept, and crazy easy to whip up. Quesadillas are an excellent way to enjoy that leftover loaf! Whether an easy lunch, or a night time cozy-up by the TV and have dinner (sounds charming, doesn’t it?) this handheld meal is anything but a repeat.
An obvious choice that you’re probably wishing you’d thought of sooner. Oh yeah…meatloaf WOULD make an incredible meat sauce over pasta. Well, that was easy.
It’s not a burger, and it’s not a grilled cheese, or even a club sandwich. It’s a hybrid of all three, and it’s the a drool-worthly way to use up those leftovers!
Yes! Perfect. Dinner one day, breakfast the next. A comforting morning meal that will certainly keep you full and going strong all day!
Dinner one night, party food the next. Actually, scratch that. No party necessary. Kids love sliders, adults love sliders. Fun bite-sided food is where it’s at.
This may be the easiest way to whip up a whole new meal using those meatloaf leftovers, in a stromboli that comes off both impressive and inventive.
Much like a meatball sub, you can easily create a meatloaf melt on a long bun like you see here. While this recipe calls for making the entire meatloaf from scratch, you just can skip that part – meatloaf is made, and leftovers are ready to shine!
How. Freaking. Genius. Yes! Little meatloaf handrolls you can dip and enjoy all you like. They’re perfect for serving up and a completely new spin on meatloaf in general.
If meatballs make soup delicious, then surely chopped up meatloaf can do the same (isn’t meatloaf just a giant loaf shaped meatball anyways?).
