Leftover Meatloaf Soup

Leftover Meatloaf Soup created by Mary M.

Ok, so I had this leftover meatloaf that no one was going to eat [no one but me likes meatloaf] and I needed to use it up, so I came up with this soup, and it turned out pretty good. I’m really just posting it so I remember how to make it [ha-ha] if you make it, feel free to sub prepared meatballs as well, and to mix up the veggies as to what you have on hand. It makes a lot, but it does freeze okay.

    I live alone and was longing for meatloaf, so I made one. But what to do with half a meat loaf when I was already sick of eating it? This recipe! I used canned corn instead of frozen veg, because that's what I had on hand. I also added some diced celery. I omitted the pasta altogether and added a bay leaf. It was a super delicious soup!

    This soup turned out so good. It was a good base recipe for me to tweak with the ingredients I had on hand which included a green bell pepper, celery, carrots and some frozen peas. Also used some cooked potato chunks, brown rice and quick barley to round out the soup. We loved it!

    This soup was a fabulous idea. I didn't know what to do with my Asian style meatloaf. So I googled leftover meatloaf soup recipe ideas. This came up, so I decided to go with this recipe. It turned out to be very tasty.. However, I added celery, yellow peppers, and bok choy instead of spinach. Plus I use bay leafs to boost the flavor some more. I will definitely be making this again. This was fabulous.
