Do you ever get a weeknight craving for a delicious burger but just not have the energy to fire up the grill? Sure you could pick one up but unless you have a really good burger place nearby that’s not always the best option. I’ve been pondering on this for a couple of years now (not kidding, this is how my mind really works, thinking of food practically all the time!). And finally the idea came to me. People like meatloaf sandwiches, right? So why not make our meatloaf burger style and turn it into a burger you can have after a long day and no grill required?!
