Italian Stuffed Meatloaf Sandwich

Make a juicy, delicious Italian Stuffed meatloaf sandwich!

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.

A delicious meatloaf stuffed with Italian flavor

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!

Garden Peppers By Homemadefoodjunkie.com

This is one trip out to the garden. Dave brought in this enormous basket of gorgeous roasting peppers!

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!

I know you've mentioned that men usually prefers meat in their sandwiches BUT I love meaty sandwiches too - when I bring sandwiches at work. This is so timely as I am running out of easy recipes for my sandwiches. Reason why I prefer meat at work, it makes me full longer which is perfect since it saves me on a lot of costs since I am at work for 12 to 14 hours particularly during editing. Thanks Diane, you're heaven sent :)

I had managed to get this image out of my head after seeing it on your Facebook page a day or two ago, and now, it's back! I have not had meatloaf in so long - it's such a comfort food, but placing it between bread like that makes it a million times better!
