I love meatloaf, and not just for dinner, but for the leftovers as well. Yes, its a comfort food, and it tastes even better after spending a night in the fridge. The same thing for meatballs. I'm thinking the flavors meld. That word meld is used a lot when we talk about overnight foods. But the fridge works wonders on meat mixed with spices and onion, aka aromatics.
So, last weekend I made meatloaf, and it was underwhelming stylistically. I didn't use enough bread to bind the meat together, and it has split apart. And maybe I added too many frozen peas, so the meat would not stick together. But it still tasted good. And after spending the week in the freezer, I put it in the fridge to defrost. Then came lunch Saturday.
Whole wheat bread, some mayonnaise, lettuce, and of course, additional ketchup tops it off. Not sure why ketchup works so well this way, but it does.
This sandwich wasn't perfect, as the meatloaf had crumbled apart due to the lack of binder, but it tasted great.
