BBQ Meatloaf Sliders
Sliders in practically any flavor are genuine party food. They're ideal for casual dining, snacks and game day watching with the family. At our house, they're usually gobbled-up in minutes. This meatloaf version is for all of the meatloaf sandwich fans in the world. I've often said that, I'm not sure what I enjoy more, a freshly baked meatloaf or the meatloaf sandwich that was sure to follow later in the day. These sliders allow you to skip the meal and go straight to the sandwich. I'm all in.
Helpful BBQ Meatloaf Slider Making Tips
- The beef mixture can be made one day in advance and chilled. You can do it one of two ways. Either form into individual portions and place into an airtight container with wax paper between layers and chill. Alternately, you can make the meatloaf mixture and store in an airtight container, then divide into portions just before baking. Either way, you'll need to store chilled, of course.
- The chili sauce called for in the recipe is not a spicy Asian chili sauce. Heinz chili sauce or a similar private label brand, is what the recipe is referring to.
- If you're feeding a hungry crowd, I highly recommend that you double the recipe so there will be plenty of meatloaf sliders to go around.
- Other slider recipes you may like to try are my Easy Cheesy Taco Sliders, Sloppy Joe Pizza Sliders and Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders.

Serve these sliders alongside blackened potato wedges, baked potato nachos or a heaping helping of homestyle macaroni salad.
