Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the meat loaf: Preheat oven to 350. Mix milk and bread in a large bowl, and let stand for 5 minutes. Mix in the remaining ingredients through salt using your hands; season with pepper. Form meat mixture into a 5-by-12 inch loaf on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until browned and meat loaf registers 140 on an instant read thermometer, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly, then cut into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  2. Make the tomato relish: Preheat broiler. Arrange tomatoes on a backing sheet and brush with oil. Broil tomatoes until softened and charred, 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool, then chop.
  3. Heat oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add shallots, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add water and sugar, bring to a simmer, and cook until reduced by half. Add charred tomatoes, vinegar, and honey, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Stir in cayenne and salt. Strain, and discard liquid. Let cool. (Relish will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 3 days.).
  4. To assemble: Puree garlic and oil in a blender. Brush 1 side of each slice of bread with garlic oil. Top half the bread with meat loaf, tomato relish, and mache. Top with remaining bread, garlic-oil side down.
