Heat the butter
in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute the apples, celery

cubes and moisten with 1 to 1/1 2 cups of stock

Reheat the meatloaves in medium hot oven to warm through. Place them in a shallow baking dish
and cover with foil. Cook's Note: To keep the loaves from drying out - add a splash of stock, this will keep the loaves super moist.

, then whisk
in a couple of cups of stock and thicken, season with salt to taste. Cool completely and store in the refrigerator. Reheat the mixture in a saucepan
