Epic Meatloaf Sliders

Check out that sandwich – seriously, it’s insane and unapologetically messy. The cheese oozes at the slightest pressure as you hold it and every bite is pretty much accompanied with a sandwich sweep of the plate to mop up the drippy egg yolk. Sure, it may not be the sexiest thing to eat in front of your husband, but there’s no other way to eat this.

This is one of those meals that Matt and I made together. I made the biscuits and he did his Epic Meatloaf. (Which by the way, I’m shamelessly pimping because it’s out-of-this-world good, click here for the recipe. Below will only be the recipe for biscuits). I ended up having to make a second batch of biscuits for the meatloaf leftovers that we turned into these sliders. Of course you can use any bread, but why would you skip this easy-to-make cheddar cheese and chive biscuit—it makes these sliders. Seriously. Along with that I layered the sliders with bacon, arugula, Roth 5 Peppercorn Raclette Cheese and a fried egg to top it all off.

Oh, and the beverage choices—classy, I know.

And random thought, because you guys know I’m full of them. Cooking with your husband—awesome. Having a food blogging husband–crazy cool, because now I’m always guaranteed at least two nights off of cooking. Woot for me! And aside from that, blogging shop talk is now a two-way conversation, rather than a ping pong of craziness volleyed back with head-nods.

Cheddar and Chive Biscuits

Yield: Makes 12 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced and kept chilled until ready to use
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted used for brushing tops of biscuits


Preparation: Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Line bakesheet with parchment.

  1. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add in the cold butter and using a pastry blender or two fork, or your fingers, cut the butter and shortening into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles wet sand and the butter is the size of peas. Add the cold buttermilk and use a sturdy spatula or your hands and to mix the dough until everything is combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until top surface is smooth. Shape dough into a rectangle and using a rolling pin, roll dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Use a knife or a metal bench scraper and cut into 2 1/2 inch squares. Place biscuits on parchment lined bakesheet one inch apart. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake at 450 degrees F for about 12-14 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for five minutes.


  • Any cheddar cheese will work, but I used extra sharp.
  • If you use table salt instead of kosher salt make sure to cut the ratio in half.

    I started following Matt and just realized that it’s your hubby. Love that you both have different style. I think that it is amazing that he has his own food blog. I really want to make his meatloaf because I know it would be a winner with my sons. Back to these meatloaf sliders, they look crazy good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
