Meatloaf Sandwiches

I know, I know.


Kind of uninspired, right?

But, oh! Meatloaf sandwiches!

They are the ultimate remind you of your mama-forget your worries (or that extra pound)- life is good kind of food. 

And Pioneer Woman's Meatloaf makes really, really good meatloaf sandwiches. 

Of course, having a gluten-free girl in the house, as well as a really bad grocery shopper... (I always forget to double check to make sure that everything on my list ends up in my cart. I figure, if I write it down on the list, it should end up in my cart. But it doesn't seem to work that way.)


I had to modify it a bit. 

The result? MmmMmm good meatloaf! 

But even better sandwiches!

Here's what I substituted: 

1 cup skim milk for whole milk, 
3-4 slices gluten free bread (we used Udi's) for 6 slices regular bread
1 pound ground beef and 1 pound ground turkey for 2 lbs. of ground beef,
1/2 cup chopped onions
 and 1/2 cup chopped celery

The rest of the ingredients for the meatloaf were the same. 

For the sauce, I used 1 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/3 cup brown sugar. I didn't have any tabasco on hand, so I used some crushed red pepper. How much? A few shakes. A taste. And then a few more shakes.
(Can you tell? I am a very precise chef.)

The end result was a meatloaf that I know I will make again.
And again, and again!!!
