How to make Meatball Sliders

Meatball Sliders are an easy weeknight dinner as the meatballs can be prepared ahead of time.

Here's what you need

Ingredients  - hawaiian rolls - marinara sauce - egg - milk - basil - garlic - onion - lean ground beef - cheese

Step 1

First you will preheat your oven and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Use nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking. In a large bowl, add in the ground beef. 

Step 2

Then you will add the garlic, herbs, egg, milk and cheese. To use the slider buns as bread crumbs, break up 2 of the Hawaiian buns and add them into the mixture. Add the salt and pepper last.

Step 3

Gently combine the mixture and then form it into 20 meatballs. Place them on the sheet pan and let them bake for about 20 minutes. Heat the marinara sauce on the stove top while the meatballs bake..

Pro Tip:

For best results, start with warming the Hawaiian sweet rolls. Remove the plastic and keep the buns in the container. Heat them until golden brown for 3-5 minutes in the oven
