Meatloaf Sliders

12 Servings (24 Sliders)

Prep Time : 25 Minutes. Cook Time: 20 Minutes

The most popular recipe from my first cookbook was meatloaf. I called it "manloaf" because if you make it for a man, he's destined to fall in love with you.

Everyone loved it, even Oprah! So many people are serving sliders at parties that I decided to miniaturize my meatloaf for a party and turn it into a small sandwich — a meatloaf slider. These mini manloaves were the hit of the party!


  • 1 Pound Extra Lean Ground Beef

  • 1 Large Egg, Lightly Beaten

  • ½ Cup Ketchup

  • ¼ Cup Grated Onion

  • ¼ Cup Bread Crumbs

  • 1 ¼ Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Flat-Leaf Parsley

  • 1 Teaspoon Minced Fresh Thyme Leaves

  • ½ Tea Spoon Kosher Salt

  • ½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

  • ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • 24 Slider-Size Hamburger Buns Mayonnaise


Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a cooling rack on top. Spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the beef , egg, ¼ cup of the ketchup , the onion, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Use your hands to mix everything together.

Divide meat by the tablespoonful and shape each into a thin patty. Place on the prepared rack. Brush the patties with the 2 remaining ¼ cup ketchup. Bake for 20 minutes.

While meatloaf is baking, spread mayonnaise onto one side of each bun. Place each meatloaf slider in a prepared bun and serve.
