Garlic Bread Meatball Sliders

Ingredients

for 12 servings

  • 1 lb (455 g) ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tablespoon kosher salt
  • ½ tablespoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup (25 g) grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup (255 g) marinara sauce
  • 1 pack dinner roll, 12 rolls left intact, not pulled apart
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese

Garlic Butter

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (180°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parmesan, and chopped basil until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Take a golf ball-sized amount of the beef mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the beef mixture, setting the meatballs aside on a plate.
  4. Heat oil in a pan over high heat. Sear meatballs on one side for about one to two minutes, then flip. Cook for another one to two minutes, then remove the meatballs from the pan and drain any excess fat.
  5. Pour the marinara sauce into the pan and place the meatballs in the sauce. Cook for about eight to 10 minutes, flipping the meatballs in the sauce until the sauce has reduced to a thick consistency. Remove from heat.
  6. Cut the 4×3 sheet of dinner rolls in half lengthwise. Arrange the bottom half into a 9×13 inch (23x33 cm) baking pan.
  7. Place the meatballs evenly in a 4×3 grid, putting one on each roll. Layer the mozzarella evenly on top. Cover with the top half of the dinner rolls.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, garlic, basil, and parmesan, stirring until evenly mixed. Pour the garlic butter mixture over the top of the sliders.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes until the rolls are golden brown and cheese is melted.
  10. Cut into individual sandwiches, and serve.
  11. Enjoy!
