Meatloaf Parmesan Sliders


These little beef & pork patties give you the comfort of meatloaf in a slider that takes one third the cooking time and gets a mozzarella and parmesan topping.

Meatloaf Parmesan Sliders 
Yield: 6 sliders, 3 main course servings

Ingredients
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese (plus extra for serving)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh, chopped flat leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 pound (6 thin slices) mozzarella cheese

Method

  1. Place meat in a large bowl.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients, except mozzarella cheese,  in a separate small bowl to create a binding sauce.  
  3. Pour sauce over meat and combine well with a fork or your very clean hands.
  4. Form six patties and place on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Bake 375˚F for 15 minutes, top with cheese and bake 5 minutes more.  Drain any fat and juices off before topping with cheese.
Serve on mini rolls or as is over pasta with tomato sauce and sautéed mushrooms.
