Turkey meatloaf sliders, a childhood favorite reinvented

There’s something warm and nostalgic about meatloaf that instantly transports you back to childhood. Think of the anticipation as the kitchen filled with the savory perfume of roasting meat.

How about the way the light glistened on the gloriously jammy glaze? And the best part was sitting at the table eating that first slice, already looking forward to the leftovers on a sandwich the next day.

Ground turkey is such a canvas for flavor. It makes the ideal base for these poppable treats.

The nuanced umami of Worcestershire provides depth and savoriness while the punch of freshly minced garlic makes your taste buds dance. And the delicate snowy flakes of gluten free panko along with the richness of tangy ketchup keep these sliders irresistibly moist.

These turkey meatloaf sliders with tomato chutney give you the hug of familiarity with an elevated flavor profile. Fun, festive, and less laborious than an entire meatloaf, these hand held bites are going to become your new favorite comfort food.

Classic with a Twist!

The thick, chunky tomato chutney kicks these irresistible sliders to the next level. Summery fresh cherry tomatoes in all of their crimson glory cook down. Their flavor concentrates and mingles with the bright acidic pop of apple cider vinegar. Sweet supple raisins join aromatic onions and a bay leaf.

In short, the chutney is the ultimate accent on the sliders. It’s equally perfect as the star of your next charcuterie or grazing board.

Now that I know you’re craving these sweet and savory decadent sliders, let’s make some meatloaf and chutney! Don’t be afraid to double up the recipe as these are just as good the next day!

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Large skillet


Turkey Meatloaf Sliders

  • 1 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1 cup Gluten Free panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Gluten Free slider buns, toasted

Tomato Raisin Chutney

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 bay leaf


Turkey Meatloaf Sliders

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients until just incorporated, careful not to over mix. Using an ice cream scoop, equally portion out your sliders. You should yield about 5.
  • Heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add your meatloaf scoops and cover, turning occasionally so all sides evenly brown and form a beautiful crust, approximately 5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reads 165.
  • Assemble each slider by topping the turkey meatloaf with the tomato chutney. Serve extra on the side.

Tomato Raisin Chutney

  • Heat a sauce pot over medium heat with olive oil. Add the onion and cook until softened and translucent, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and reduce heat to medium/low, stirring occasionally. Cook for 20 minutes until the tomatoes are completely slumped and burst, raisins have plumped, and the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  • Remove the bay leaf before serving.
  • The chutney can be prepared ahead of time and keeps in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.


I used MYBREAD Gluten Free Original Dinner Rolls for the slider buns. With their gorgeous golden crust, they hold up well to the luxurious tomato raisin chutney and meatloaf and smell incredible toasting in the oven.
Feel free to substitute the ground turkey for lean ground turkey, ground chicken, or ground beef.
For the panko, I like to use Ian’s Foods Panko. They come in both original and Italian seasoned and are light, airy, and flaky proving incredible texture to these meatloaf sliders.

These meatloaf sliders can just as easily be prepared in the oven. Preheat your oven to 375. Bake on a cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes, until the outside is browned and the internal temperature reads 165.
