The Squirrel Can Cook - "Sandwich" Meatloaf

A while back, a friend gave me a couple of boxes of matzah meal, and I was kicking around ideas for using it. One thing you always use bread crumbs for is meatloaf and meatballs, so I thought I’d give it a try.

Today we’re going to cook a simple meatloaf. This meatloaf is very similar to (I mean, a meatloaf is a meatloaf, right?) the one we cooked back on April 24, 2009 with one major difference; instead of using oatmeal this meatloaf uses matzah meal. This gives our meatloaf a finer “grain” which allows for thinner slices, which are great for sandwiches.


Our ingredients are:
2 pounds of ground beef
1 cup of matzah meal
2 eggs
2/3 cup of Marinara sauce



Put all the ingredients in a big mixing bowl. Mix everything very well (by hand still works best.) and form into a loaf in a baking dish. (Tip: crack your eggs into a large drinking glass and scramble with a fork before adding them to the rest of the ingredients for better distribution throughout the meatloaf.)


Spoon a bit of Marinara sauce on top of the meatloaf and bake at 350° for one hour. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing. (This meatloaf would work well for this sandwich…) Enjoy!

The Squirrel shall not live by bread NUTS alone!

Who doesn't love a meatloaf sandwich? Yum! And, have you tried natural, grass-fed beef for your meatloaf?

Actually, I've tried natural venison for meatloaf more than once. Elk is good, too. But bison is the best! Mom's got some ground emu in her freezer, but I don't think it'd make good meatloaf...
