TO MAKE THE TOMATO JAM:

Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic, ginger and onion and sauté until translucent. Add tomatoes, breaking them up with a wooden spoon. Add vinegar, honey, brown sugar, ginger, cloves, cinnamon sticks and star anise.

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have dissolved and the liquid has evaporated, 60 to 75 minutes. Discard cinnamon sticks and star anise. Cool and put in a container. Store in the refrigerator.


TO ASSEMBLE THE SANDWICH:

Toast the bread.
Spread the slices of bread with tomato jam.
Lay sliced tomato on one slice of bread, then layer the meatloaf on top and then the lettuce.
Top with a second slice of bread, tomato jam side facing down
Cut in half and serve.

Personal Notes:

I have had this recipe since 2001.
I took it out of Martha Stewart's magazine.

Ketchup can be used instead of Tomato Jam and, if you do that, I would probably omit the tomato slices.
