I always make more brisket than I need - it makes great sandwiches. "Playing with my food" is too much fun! My family loved the results so much - I just had to share with y'all. The addition of cooked ground brisket along with bacon flavored Ritz crackers added so much flavor. Leftover meatloaf will make for some amazing sandwiches.
I hope you give it a try next time you are trying to figure out what to do with your brisket leftovers.
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In your food processor, pulse crackers to course crumbs. Remove to another dish and set aside.
2Add brisket slices and pulse to a nice ground as shown.
3In your mixing add all meatloaf ingredients and mix until well incorporated. If you have a mixer with a dough hook it will come together quickly on speed 2.
4If you aren't going to cook with roasted veggies place 2 slices of thin sandwich bread in the bottom of 9x5 loaf pan and place meatloaf mixture and press into pan. This will soak up any grease - remove bread and discard prior to serving.
5I decided I wanted some roasted potatoes to cook with the meatloaf so I placed a large piece of plastic wrap in a 8x5 pan to form the meatloaf and inverted it into a 11x13 Pyrex baking dish.
6Bake uncovered for 1 hour 10 minutes. (total time - if adding root veggies- cook 30 minutes, add veggies, then complete cooking time)
7Remove meatloaf from oven. Mix glaze ingredients and spoon over meatloaf. Return to oven for 10 minutes.
8Remove from oven and let rest about 10 minutes. Gently slice and enjoy!
