Start with a darn-good glazed meat loaf. Add toasted French bread, melted Muenster and peppery arugula (to make it fancy). Then douse it all in special sauce (because fancy needs to loosen up).


  • 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped dill pickle
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 5 tablespoons ketchup, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef (85% or more lean)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 loaf soft French bread (5 to 6 inches wide)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 ounces Muenster cheese, sliced
  • 3/4 cup arugula


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, egg, onion, pickle, milk, 2 tablespoons ketchup, 1 tablespoon mustard, salt and pepper. Add beef; mix well. Shape into a 4x5-inch loaf and place in a 2-quart baking dish. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until done (165 degrees ). Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Turn oven to broil.
  2. Meanwhile, for sauce: Stir together remaining 3 tablespoons ketchup, 1 tablespoon mustard and the mayonnaise. Chill, covered.
  3. Cut bread into eight 3/4-inch-thick slices. (You may not use the whole loaf.) Lightly butter both sides of bread and place on one end of a large baking sheet. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat source for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted; turn slices. Slice meat loaf into four 5-inch long slices. Place on other end of baking sheet and top with cheese. Broil 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread is lightly toasted and cheese is melted. Assemble sandwiches using toasted bread, meat loaf, arugula and sauce.
