Leftover Meatloaf is the Best

I know, I know,  it’s not actually that hard to use up leftover meatloaf, you can throw it between bread and call it a sandwich or simply re-heat it up and eat it as-is. I was camping this past week ( and as you all know by now I am a “glamper”, not a camper) and made a great meatloaf out at the trailer. This Bacon Topped Mozza  Meatloaf is a really good one to make because the bacon is fantastic baked into this quiche, but any meatloaf will do.

This recipe uses the Bisquick Impossible Quiche Recipe which is my favourite cheater recipe to make at the lake. You beat the Bisquick into the egg and milk mixture until it’s smooth and then pour it right over your chopped up meat loaf and cheese chunks. I would like to say that I made cheese chunks instead of grated cheese because it’s better, but to be honest I didn’t have a cheese grater out at the lake. The diced cheese was pretty fantastic however!

Tips & Tricks For Making Leftover Meatloaf Quiche

  1. You can use whatever meatloaf your heart desires! The wonderful thing about a quiche recipe is that all of the ingredients are plain – eggs and milk, basically – which means that you can use all sorts of bold flavours and mix and match! I used old, sharp cheddar because I really wanted something crazy cheesy, but you can use swiss to blue cheese and it will work!
  2. You can make this low carb by leaving out the Bisquick and make it more of a frittata – and I will be doing that shortly for our low carb recipe website.
  3. If you want to add vegetables you will have to steam them ahead of time. They will not cook until soft in this quiche (and rarely do in normal quiches). Quickly steam them in the microwave until tender-crisp, drain and add them.
  4. Make this healthier by making a ground turkey meatloaf!

This will be my new go-to recipe when I make meatloaf this winter, it’s such an easy, fast and delicious way to make an entire meal that doesn’t feel like you are eating leftovers. Those are the best kinds of recipes so that you aren’t getting bored, as some people are just not leftover people – Mr Magpie being one of them. I personally can eat leftovers for a few days happily, but I’ve never been able to get him on the leftovers train.

How about you? Where do you stand on leftovers?

Happy cooking!

  • 2 cups crumbled leftover cooked meatloaf
  • 1 Cup cheddar cheese diced
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 Cup Bisquick
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 400 °F.
  • Lightly grease a deep dish 10-inch pie plate OR use a seasoned cast iron skillet.
  • Sprinkle the crumbled meatloaf and cheese evenly over the bottom of the pie plate.
  • Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.
  • In a medium bowl, pour in the milk and then add in the Bisquick and beat until smooth – it must be smooth to work! A whisk works great! Once smooth, add in the eggs and combine again.
  • Pour the liquid mix over the ingredients in the pie plate.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean.
  • Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Slice and serve!

    Great idea! DH loved this and he wants it on a regular rotation. Guess I’ll be making more meatloaf soon. The only slight change I made was a I used a homemade bisquick and added crushed red pepper to zing this up a bit 😛 I think this quickie quiche idea would be a good way to use up chicken and veggies and make a “chicken pot pie” quiche.5 stars

  2. Doris says

    I always stayed away from making quiche because I didn’t want to make the pie pastry (I guess that I could have purchased such) but making it this way was perfect…very good…I did add some garlic powder & red pepper flakes…next time I will add more cheese…I used coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese. Served with a side salad.

  3. Jim says

    This was terrible. I followed the recipe carefully an I am considered a good cook.
    Soggy. Bland. I would be embarrassed to serve this to guests.

  4. DIANNE says

    Used regular ground beef with seasoning & onion. Browned in cast iron pan then absorbed any grease & used same pan for quiche. One pan, big measuring cup & bowl, Easy clean up & VERY GOOD meal. served with side salad for dinner.5 stars

  5. Beverly Harmon says

    This is REALLY GOOD !! My extremely picky husband enoyed it. I used 2 cups sharp cheddar because the 1 didn’t look like it would be as cheesey as we like. It is easy to put together and baked up nicely.

  6. Deborah says

    No tip. A question. Can I substitute a cup of complete pancake mix, for the bisquick?

  7. TineMarie says

    I have made this quiche 5 or 6 times now. It is one of my family’s favorite recipes of the past year! It is easy and so yummy! Sometimes we add some steamed veggies to it, and sometimes we leave it as is. It is delicious either way. And any leftovers are so good!5 stars

  8. Valerie Brady says

    I plan on making this for dinner tonight. Iam excited to find a new way to use leftover meatloaf.

  9. Anonymous says

    Very yummy did twist to the recipe, measured everything but the cheese. I added two handfuls of blended cheese and another handful of parmesan cheese. I also cooked two slices of bacon and made bits into it and added that. I wanted to add spinach but I forgot that. I went ahead popped that right in the oven let it cook took it out for the last five minutes added a layer of parmesan cheese on top then popped it right in and it was delicious. Everything balanced well. My hands a very small so the cheese totaled up to a cup and a half.5 stars

    I love the Bisquick quiche method! It’s magic and no fail!
