Pan Seared Meatloaf


I keep sliced meatloaf in the freezer so it is ready for a quick meal.

Over the weekend I thawed a few slices for our meal.

Instead of just warming them up, I did this!


Sliced Meatloaf




I keep sliced meatloaf in the freezer so it is ready for a quick meal

Over the weekend I thawed a few slices for our meal.  Instead of just warming them up, I did this!

I took a large frying pan and sautéed the sliced onions in butter

After a few minutes, I removed them and set them aside

I added a little more butter to the pan and added the meatloaf slices

I let them go about 5 minutes a side over medium heat

While those were crisping up, I made the gravy and side dishes

I plated the meatloaf, topped it with onions and gravy

This was a nice change from the way we usually have it

He cleaned his plate!
