Leftover Meatloaf Inspiration
I was foraging through my refrigerator and discovered some five-day-old meatloaf. Naturally, it was dry. Typically, I would have ground up the meat and used it in another recipe. (One of the oldest kitchen tricks in the book) Today, however, I decided to rescue this dry leftover meatloaf.
I started with three dry slabs of meatloaf. I lightly fried the meat on low heat in a pan with oil and Worcestershire sauce. The more moderate heat gave the meat time to absorb the oil and sauce. After flipping the meat, I applied a little Italian dressing. Not much but enough to give the meat a juicy look. Then I topped the meat with two extra large eggs and let cook for another five minutes. I covered the frying pan so the eggs would solidify quicker. As you can see from the photo, I left the eggs “runny.”
For all intense purposes, this leftover meatloaf was dead. I got out my culinary defibrillator and shocked this meat into a fabulous meal. The oil and sauce made the meat juicy. The eggs gave it character and texture. Not only had I managed to rescue this meatloaf, but I had transformed it into a lively delicious dish.
