Meatloaf: Perfect for Picnics?

2 whole meatloaves

Yes, you heard correctly, I said, meatloaf is perfect for picnics. Picnic subs, that is. Meatloaf is often thought of as comfort food–something to eat with mashed potatoes and gravy when the weather is cold and a hearty meal is in order, but it can also be part of a summer menu as well. When served as a sandwich filler in addition to some other yummy toppings and sides, meatloaf makes a great picnic dish.  This recipe makes two loaves, and can be prepared either in loaf pans or free-form on a cookie sheet. (I know that most people don’t have loaf pans they use for meat meals.)

Once the loaves are cool, slice them up and serve them inside crusty Italian rolls. Top with lettuce, tomato, avocado,  some pickled veggies (giardiniera)…the possibilities are endless. A vinegar-based potato salad and a sweet and spicy Thai Cucumber Salad are two great sides to add to your picnic basket.
