  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350 F. Spray 18 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, parsley, finely minced onion and bell pepper, thyme, black pepper, salt, egg, and 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce. Mix well until ingredients are thoroughly blended. 
  3. Step 3

    Using a 1/4-cup measure, pack 1/4 cup of the meat mix in each muffin cup, or place on the foil lined baking sheet and flatten slightly to a burger shape. 
  4. Step 4

    Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through. The meatloaves should register at least 165 F on an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a mini meatloaf. Brush each mini meatloaf with a little barbecue sauce.
  5. Step 5

    Cut the cheese slices into quarters, if using. Top the sliders with cheese and return to the oven; bake just until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes longer.
  6. Step 6

    Remove from the oven and let stand for about 10 minutes. Split the slider buns and toast if desired. Assemble the sliders with a mini meatloaf and toppings of choice.
