The left-over sandwich

I had so much food in my fridge from all the cookbook cooking and other culinary experiments (rocket pesto, ricotta, meatloaf,…) that needed to be consume as fast as possible so I decided to throw it all in a sandwich!

It was  a great idea cause this sandwich rocked my world! and it will rock yours when you’ll try it!

For the bread I have used the loaf I made for my cookbook, it’s a Mediterranean recipe of mine with sun-dried tomatoes, capers and olives but, while waiting for my book to be published, you can replace it with simple white bread or whole wheat one.


  • 3 slices of bread of your choice
  • 1-2 slices of meatloaf
  • 2 slices of tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • 1 tsp rocket pesto
  • 1 tbsp ricotta

Grill the bread on both sides

then spread the rocket pesto on one slice

lay a few sliced of meatloaf

next up grab the second slice of bread and spread the ricotta cheese on it

put it on top of the sandwitch and add a few slices of tomatoes

and some lattuce

Cover with the remaining slice of bread, pressing well down

Your sandwich is ready to be served!
