6 servings

  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cups Thousand Island dressing
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 gloves garlic minced
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • Pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound sharp Cheddar, cut into 1-inch thick strips
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • Butter cooking spray
  • 12 slices marble rye bread, for serving
  • Tomato slices, for serving
  • Lettuce, for serving
  • 4 dill pickles
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Heat a large skillet with the oil over medium heat and saute the onions until translucent. Remove to a large bowl and let cool.

  • Add all the remaining ingredients, except the cheese and BBQ sauce, to the bowl and combine well. Liberally spray a baking sheet with cooking spray Take half of the ground beef mixture and form into a loaf on the baking sheet.

  • Lay the strips of cheese on top of the meatloaf, then cover with the other half of the meat mixture. When finished it should look like a block of meatloaf.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the internal temperature registers140 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. This should take about 1 hour (but please check constantly as some ovens cook faster then others). About 5 minutes before the meatloaf is ready remove from oven and coat with the BBQ sauce. Return to the oven until nicely glazed.

  • Remove meatloaf from the oven to a cutting board and allow to cool. Cut the meatloaf into 1-inch thick slices and put each slice between 2 pieces of rye bread. At this point you can add, tomato, lettuce and pickle, if you like.

I like to heat a skillet up and fry the sandwich before serving.
