Meatloaf Sandwich Competition

Seven Onion BBQ Meatloaf | Savory Spice

The Rules:

The rules were simple--use leftover Seven Onion BBQ Meatloaf from the day before to make the best meatloaf sandwich. Mike, Michael, and Ashlee had 30 minutes and a fully stocked Test Kitchen to create a meatloaf sandwich masterpiece to present to three judges.

The Contestants


Mike

Co-Founder of Savory Spice

Entry: Greekloaf Gyro

Mike Cooking Meatloaf | Savory Spice

Mike’s mom’s side of his family is Greek, so he grew up eating Gyros. His wife, Janet, actually suggested this idea to Mike. “Greekloaf concept made perfect sense. Gyros are basically just a meatloaf that’s on a spit,” Mike said. “I love the challenge of using up leftover ingredients in the fridge.”

So he was ready to impress the judges.

Mike’s Secret Ingredients

  • Leftover Seven Onion BBQ Meatloaf, sliced into 1/8 thick strips, fried in vegetable oil
  • Cucumber slices
  • Tomato slices
  • Mixed greens
  • Hummus
  • Pita flatbread

For tzatziki sauce:


Michael

Test Kitchen Chef

Entry: Meatcube Marinara Sub

Michael had never had a meatball marinara sub before, “I’ve always heard about how much people love them,” said Michael.

So he figured the judges would love it and he wanted to try it for himself to see what the hype is about. “Plus, I knew we had a Spice ‘n Easy mix that would make the marinara super easy to make.”

Mike’s Secret Ingredients

  • Leftover Seven Onion BBQ Meatloaf, cubed
  • Rustic Red Sauce (Just add a can of diced tomatoes, heat, and puree for perfect marinara!)
  • Provolone cheese
  • 4 hoagie buns
  • Butter, melted and infused with fresh garlic for hoagie buns
  • Chopped parsley

Ashlee

Test Kitchen Chef

Entry: New American Diner Classic
