Italian Style Meatloaf Sandwich


Full of Flavor

There’s nothing like a perfect Italian Style Meatloaf Sandwich to end a great day. I crave this delicious meatloaf sandwich all the time. It’s definitely comfort food at its best.

Of course meatloaf is one of the few meals that always tastes better the next day. Once the flavors get a chance to blend in the fridge your always in for a special treat. Sometimes I’ll make a it just for a Meatloaf Sandwich.

This Italian Style Meatloaf Sandwich is extra special because I usually cover it with marinara sauce. It’s a little extra that adds a tremendous amount of flavor to the sandwich. Served hot or cold, this sandwich makes a great meal.
