Spicy Meatloaf Sandwich


2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 chipotle en adobo, finely chopped
1 large hoagie roll, cut in half horizontally and toasted
1 (1-inch-thick) slice meatloaf (see recipe below)
1 tablespoon finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil


Place mayonnaise and chipotle in a small bowl and mix until well combined.
Spread half of the chipotle mayonnaise on the bottom half of the roll and top with meatloaf, then tomatoes. Spread remaining mayonnaise on the top half of the roll and close the sandwich. Cut in half and serve.

Turkey-Pork Meatloaf


3/4 cup packed fresh, plain, torn bread pieces, crusts removed
1/3 cup whole milk
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 medium celery ribs, finely chopped
2/3 cup finely chopped yellow onion
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers
1/3 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
2 large eggs, whisked until smooth
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds ground pork
1 pound ground turkey (preferably thigh meat)
1/4 cup ketchup


Heat oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine torn bread and milk in a small bowl; set aside. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. When oil shimmers, add celery, onion, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook until no longer raw tasting, about 4 minutes more. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside to cool slightly, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Add soaked bread, half of the roasted red peppers, parsley, eggs, Worcestershire, salt, mustard, and pepper to the vegetables and stir together until evenly combined. Add pork and turkey and using clean hands mix until combined (don’t squeeze or overwork).

Form meat into a loose loaf and transfer into a 9-by-5 1/4-by-2 3/4-inch metal loaf pan (don’t press down). Mix together the remaining roasted red pepper and ketchup and brush it over the top. Place meatloaf in oven and bake until internal temperature is 150°F, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and let sit about 15 to 20 minutes, before slicing.
