Meatloaf Burgers with Crispy Onions

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Giving one of our classic and most favorite recipes a tune up! We took everyone's favorite mini meatloaf cups, stuffing them in a roll and topping with these yummy air fried crispy onions! Still healthy. Still tastes like moms. Still delicious. But this one you can eat with your hands!

The perfect 25 minute week night meal!

I recommend making a huge batch of these on Sunday night and having them for dinner with mashed potatoes. Then using the leftovers throughout the week for more casual meatloaf sandwiches with these tasty crispy onions!

A modern take on a traditional favorite- all in one one sandwich!

Meatloaf Burger with Crispy Onions

4 servings | 25 minutes


For the sandwich:

  • Mini Meatloaf Cups (8 cups) (screenshot friendly recipe below)

  • 4 rolls

For the crispy onions:

  • Original unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 onion (~100g), sliced thinly

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Bake the mini meatloaves in the oven at 400F for 25 minutes. The detailed directions can be found here.

  2. While the meatloaves are cooking prepare the onions.

  3. Slice the onion into thin strips.

  4. Arrange in a bowl and add enough almond milk to cover. Allow onions to soak for 10-15 minutes (this helps them not burn).

  5. Whisk salt, pepper and flour in a bowl.

  6. Remove the onions from the milk and toss in the flour until fully coated.

  7. Spray the bottom of the air fryer with nonstick spray.

  8. Add onions, separating any big clumps, and spray the top of the onions with another spray of nonstick spray.

  9. Bake the onions in the air fryer at 300F for 15-20 minutes.

  10. Toss the onions every 5 minutes and remove once they’re brown and crispy.

  11. Slice the rolls in half, spray with nonstick spray and pop in the oven to toast for the last few minutes of the loaves baking.

  12. Remove the meatloaf cups and rolls from the oven. Place the meatloaf cups in the roll and top with crispy onions.

  13. Cover with the top half of the bun and dig in!
