When two of my favorite food got married, they become a single dish called Embutido Meatloaf with Tomato and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I get that yummy taste of embutido (a type of steamed Filipino meatload) and the comforting feeling from the grilled cheese sandwich. The basil and tomato is a plus, which makes it more exciting to eat.
This grilled cheese sandwich version is quick and easy to prepare. It is just like making a simple grilled Swiss cheese sandwich. It will take you less than 10 minutes to complete the entire process (given that you have the embutido ready).
There is a selection of embutido recipes that you can choose from when making this grilled cheese sandwich. There is chicken, turkey, and pork. I recommend pork embutido simply because it my favorite among the different embutido versions. Feel free to make your choice.
The best way to enjoy your Embutido Meatloaf with Tomato and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich is to dip it in tomato soup.
