These healthy chicken meatloaf muffin sliders are a simple, yet tasty party or back to school lunch option! Bet you can’t eat just one!
This past weekend, I was cooking up a STORM.
I just couldn’t seem to stop!
Who knew that cooking could be so addictive?!
Lots and lots of recipe experimentation was happening in my kitchen.
That’s ALWAYS a good thing because it means more recipes to share with you!
Because I work full-time and work some evening shifts during the week, I don’t get a whole lot of time to do recipe experimentation or photography on the days that I work.
Since I have to work a bit on the weekend as well, I tend to take my Fridays off.
So I’ve officially deemed my Fridays, “Foodie Fridays.”
That’s basically when I whip up a whole bunch of random food experiments and test it out on my family.
They enjoy it because they get lots of food to eat.
And I enjoy it because I don’t have to eat all of the food myself.
Plus, I get free recipe feedback.
On this particular Foodie Friday, I whipped up a batch of these meatloaf muffin sliders.
These sliders would be awesome for a party because you can make the meatloaf muffins in advance. Plus they’re super cute all lined up on a tray.
You can make these little sliders even lighter by eating them open-faced!
It would also make a great back to school lunch.
I’m always trying to find ways to get parents away from those darn processed lunch meats.
Just back away from the lunch meats….
So convenient, yet SO full of preservatives and sodium.
Meatloaf muffin sliders are definitely a solution to that problem.
They can be premade and stored in the freezer. Huge time saver…AND stress reliever!
Each morning when you’re packing the kids’ lunch, just pack a meatloaf muffin slider along with some veggies and fruit, and the kids will have a nice balanced lunch. I bet they’ll appreciate the break from the same ol’ sandwich as well (if you don’t have a picky eater, of course!)
You can leave the tomato sauce out to avoid it from getting soggy. It will still taste awesome.
And there you have it, perfect back-to-school lunch and party food, all in one!
