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.
