Culture clash sandwich

Came home late Sunday night, so didn’t have time to go grocery shopping this weekend. What to do for Monday night dinner?

I dug some ground beef out of the freezer, flipped through the cookbook to the meatloaf section, and found a recipe that met these requirements: a) I could throw it together fairly quickly for the slow cooker and b) I had most of the ingredients.

This “meatloaf” called for salsa instead of the tomatoes/ketchup/sauce components, plus some chopped raw onion & oregano. It also called for oats instead of breadcrumbs, but I didn’t have oats, so I used panko instead. Worked great.

I also added some cheddar cheese on top after the meatloaf had come to 165, and let that melt on; then poured a bit more salsa on top (as per the directions).

The final result was this “culture clash” meatloaf sandwich. Delicious! The kids had their meatloaf with polenta and topped everything with more cheese.
