Wonder if plucky cub reporter from The Daily Planet Talia Lavin has this in her repetoir repitoire repat... list of sammichs (theswordandthesandwich[dot]substack[dot]com. Will read later, prep for doc appt now, but a Scottish "sausage roll" comes to mind as well. is like a "square sausage" (look-up recipe) piece on a roll (biscuit, in US) with maybe a tattie scone (potato pancake). Yes, I appreciate and tend to find comparisons everywhere.

Just read your comment and now I want it ALL!

Fortunately, I have a bit of leftover salmon in the fridge. Not your "tattle scone," but it'll do with a slice of rye and some sriracha. Thanks as always for spending time with my stuff.

A scone is pretty much anything made using baking powder as the rising agent rather than yeast. Not just that rock-hard pasty pastry found in Starbux; various shapes and sizes, such as the simple US pancake counts as a scone as does most of the Bisquick recipes. Square sausage obvs got it's name from the pan it was pressed into, but does have a universal recipe which can be found online. Rolls I have seen pictures of, they look like a Jimmy Dean or a White Castle creation while others look like hotdog-wrap or long pig-in-blanket. OK, looked up and saw all this was inspired by meatloaf sammie. Almost 6am local; insomnia is "fun".

Well, I know what I'm making this weekend! Might crank up The Stones instead of Van Morrison, however.

I haven't made meatloaf since Vegetarian Child moved home pre-COVID, but she's moved out and Carnivore Child has moved back home so your reminder of the sublime excellence of meatloaf sandwiches is most timely <3

Great, now I'm hungry. Meatloaf remains one of the gods' and our grandmothers' (which may be repeating myself) greatest inventions; especially in terms of how awesome it is from such humble ingredients. I'm gonna have to find some this weekend.
