This Meatloaf Sandwich with Tomato Bacon Jam is the most delicious way to use up leftover meatloaf! It’s topped with arugula, melted swiss cheese and a delicious bacon jam. 


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 high quality hamburger bun
  • 1 3/4-inch thick slice of leftover meatloaf (I used Honeysuckle White HomeStyle Turkey Meatloaf)
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Bacon Jam (see notes below)
  • 1 slice swiss cheese
  • a handful of arugula


  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. 
  • Add buns face down and allow to lightly toast for about one minute. 
  • Next, add meatloaf slice and sear for about 30 seconds on each side until lightly caramelized. Be careful not to burn.
  • Add meatloaf to toasted bun and top immediately with swiss cheese to allow to melt. Top with arugula and tomato bacon jam, serve warm. 


You have a few options for the jam. This is my favorite easy recipe online. You can also purchase bacon jam and modify it with a dab of tomato paste or crushed tomatoes.
