New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he turned down several roles in the Trump administration, but Trump made him an offer he couldn't refuse at lunch: the White House meatloaf.

Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, joined Trump at the White House on Tuesday for a bill signing and he said during lunch the typically bold president offered him the menu but then said he was going to order for him.

'This is what it's like to be with Trump,' Christie said while guest hosting a New York sports talk radio show Thursday. 'He says, "There's the menu, you guys order whatever you want." And then he says, "Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf."'

Trump said, 'I'm telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous,' according to Christie.

Trump and Christie discussed the nation's opioid epidemic during the lunch.

Christie said that Trump offered him many roles in his administration which he turned down, but he couldn't turn down the meatloaf

Christie on Wednesday signed a series of bills he requested to address the crisis, including a five-day limit on initial prescriptions for opioids and mandating state-regulated insurance plans cover treatment.

He said he didn't talk with Trump about any jobs.

Christie was one of the first prominent Republicans to throw his support behind Trump, but was not given a place in his cabinet. 

While speculation was rife that the New Jersey governor was snubbed by Trump, he claims he turned down several offers, including Homeland Security secretary and Veterans Affairs secretary as well as a White House advisory role and US ambassador to Italy, reported NJ.com.

Christie blamed his wife, who he says didn't want to live in DC.

'[Trump] didn’t offer me a job that I thought was exciting enough for me to leave the governorship, and my family. Because Mary Pat made really clear she wasn’t coming to DC,' he said on WFAN's 'Boomer and Carton' morning show.

But the meatloaf proved too enticing.
