Italian Stuffed meatloaf Sandwich makes the perfect lunchbox manwich! The meatloaf is juicy, manageable on a sandwich, and a meal in itself. Just add bread, mayo and ketchup, and maybe some passilla type peppers for a crunchy bit of zing.
This was my husbands lunch box sandwich last week. He ate one of these several day in a row, with a covetous smile on his face as he grabbed his lunchbox. What is it about guys and meatloaf? Whatever it is, this is EXACTLY the way Dave wanted his sandwich. Not fussy. I have asked every male I’ve ever fed a meat loaf sandwich, over decades; what do you want on it. “MEATLOAF” is always the answer. That’s it! Maybe ketchup. So I keep it simple.
This particular Italian Stuffed meatloaf recipe is juicy and full of cheese and rich Italian flavor. This meatloaf sandwich is amazing! I thought about putting it into a french roll for more mass in my hubby’s tummy. He would have eaten it that way too.
BUT, Dave likes the juicy squishiness of meatloaf with a nice whole grain sandwich bread. He says it holds together fine in his lunchbox; and a big roll is too much bread for him. He wants the meatloaf!
Of course this time of year, fresh peppers from Dave’s garden are going into this sandwich; no matter what he says. He eats peppers in EVERYTHING right now. It’s his own fault. What am I going to do with all these gorgeous roasting peppers? Our Bangkok peppers are coming ripe now and those are hot little monsters! But really cute! Learning about Thai chili sauces is on my list!

This meatloaf sandwich is made from My Italian Stuffed meatloaf. A beautiful meatloaf chock full of Italian cheeses, marinara sauce(I used my homemade marinara sauce), Italian herbs and olives! The red pepper you see is his Krimson Lee roasting pepper. A tasty bit of crunchy zing, just the right companion to this meatloaf!
