Our Famous Meatloaf Sandwich

Our famous meatloaf sandwich has become Thursday's featured St. Croix Sandwich, and its unique recipe is a Watershed original! In a behind-the-scenes interview, I talked with owner Rita Rasmuson about the inspiration behind this incredible sandwich.

I asked Rita how she came up with meatloaf and cranberry BBQ sauce together. "I love cranberry sauce and so does Carter, while Steve and Eli like BBQ sauce and ketchup," Rita explained. "So we thought, 'Why not mix them together!' We divided and conquered," Rita laughed.

The resulting sauce is a perfect blend of sweet and tangy. The savory cranberry BBQ sauce, combined with the rich flavor of The Watershed Cafe's housemade meatloaf, creates a zippy and zesty sandwich!

Every Thursday, you can enjoy The Watershed Cafe's own meatloaf sandwich, a famous creation of housemade meatloaf with red onions and provolone smothered in cranberry BBQ sauce on grilled cranberry wild rice bread, and served with handcut fries.
