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).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. 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°). Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Turn oven to broil.

  • Meanwhile, for sauce: Stir together remaining 3 tablespoons ketchup, 1 tablespoon mustard and the mayonnaise. Chill, covered.

  • 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.
