Take that meatloaf & Sandwich It! (plus a giveaway!)
UPDATE: Congratulations to Paula R. and Marla P. ! You’re the winners of this giveaway. Check your inboxes!
Disclosure: As part of the Maple Leaf® Connects program, I’m writing this post about using our leftovers in sandwiches. As usual, this is something we already do, with or without a cool opportunity like this one, or I wouldn’t write about it. We already buy these products, we already make these recipes, and it just happens that I’m a part of a great, fitting program that compensates me, and offers a giveaway to you all!
I’m really not a fan of leftovers unless they can be cleverly disguised as not leftovers. So if I’m eating them, you know it must be good. This weekend, Ryan made a really great meatloaf (his first!), that the kids gobbled up like crazy. With some leftover, I started planning for Monday’s lunches. I present to you, the delicious, divine, and not at all leftovery…
The Ultimate MLB (meatloaf, lettuce, bacon)
Start with some Dempster’s Bakery Whole Grains bread. We like the 12 grain stuff, and I took this picture to show you that I didn’t buy the loaf just to make this sandwich. My ratty old bag of bread was best before three days ago, but it’s Sunday night and I had a busy weekend! I didn’t get out to do the grocery shopping so I’m using what we had, that’s right, leftover.
two three pieces of bacon. (I wish I’d added another slice. Two slices was one too few.) I’m ashamed to admit this, but I popped these in the microwave to make them because, as I said, it’s Sunday and I had a busy weekend! I don’t feel like washing another pan right now.
Thinly slice the leftover meatloaf.
Butter the bread. I don’t care what some people say. . . a good sandwich needs butter on the bread! Ok, I won’t argue, but if you come over and you’re fed a sandwich, be prepared for the butter. Add a bit of mustard (I prefer dijon or grainy) on the bread.
Lay one piece of crispy romaine lettuce on the bread. None of the wilty bits will do (we give those to our guinea pigs because come on, who wants to eat wilty lettuce? Maybe my leftover-loving husband. . .)
Wait a second! I turned my back for two minutes and this is what I found:
Oh wait! I have something for you guys. Dempster’s has generously given me ten coupons. I’m going to randomly select two people to receive five coupons each. Each coupon is good for one Canada Bread Product FREE! That includes Dempster’s , Villagio, Sun-Maid and more! All you have to do to enter is jump through ten hoops, fill out some confusing form, sell me your soul and tell all your friends.
Just kidding. Leave me a comment telling me your favourite sandwich and on Friday, November 30th at 9am, I will randomly choose two winners to be notified by email.
