Cheesy Meatball Sliders |Delish D'Lites

Oh. Em. Gee.  Juicy meatballs, melty cheese, crusty bread…have I died and gone to heaven!?  These cheesy meatball sliders are out of this world. Seriously. Gooey cheese and tangy marinara sauce makes these sliders a winning dish for your next game day celebration or a fun weeknight dinner. You can make the meatballs ahead of time, and store them in the fridge for 2-3 days. Then just pop them into a pan with the marinara sauce and heat them up for 15-20 minutes, until they are warmed through.

Makes approximately 24 sliders

ingredients2 pounds ground turkey or beef
1/4 cup onion, grated
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 24-ounce jars marinara sauce
24 dinner/slider rolls, for serving
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

directions

In a large bowl, combine the onion, garlic, parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, eggs, milk, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir to combine thoroughly before adding the meat.

Then add the meat to the herb/breadcrumb mixture.

Form the meatballs, using the size of your dinner rolls as a guide. I made mine a little bigger than a golf ball.

Broil the meatballs at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until they’re golden brown, flipping them once during cooking.

While the meatballs cook, heat up the marinara sauce in a saucepan on medium heat.

After the meatballs are browned, remove them from the oven and place them into the hot marinara sauce.

Lower the heat and simmer the meatballs for another 15 minutes.

Toast the slider buns, then place the bun bottoms onto a baking sheet.

Place one meatball onto each bun, and top each meatball with a generous sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.

Broil them at 400 degrees F for 3-5 minutes, just until the cheese is melted.

Place a bun top onto each slider, then serve.
