Meatball Sliders

Both LBA and SoBA are big fans of the Meatball Sub (unfortunately some times if comes from Subway - but I'm working on that).  They also love their Nana's meatballs - who will hopefully be back on her feet soon, making meatballs for all - she recently had her knee replaced but is definitely on the mend.

Here's a recipe that I spotted a while back on making Meatball Sliders at home - I could easily do this.  From Flavor Mosaic.

Meatball Biscuit Sliders
Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 25 mins
Total time 40 mins

  • 1 package Pillsbury refrigerated Grands biscuits 
  • 1 pound lean ground beef 
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage 
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional or adjust to taste) 
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (I like lots of pepper) 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs 
  • 1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce 
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Prepare biscuits according to package directions. Set aside. 
  3. Place the ground beef and Italian sausage into a mixing bowl, and season with onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce; mix well. Add 2 eggs, Parmesan cheese, and seasoned bread crumbs. Mix until evenly blended. Then form into 1-1/2 inch meatballs, and place onto a baking sheet. 
  4. Bake in the preheated oven at 400 degrees until no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes. 
  5. Place one meatball on top of the bottom half of one biscuit. Spoon about one or two teaspoons of marinara sauce on top of each meatball. Sprinkle with a little shredded mozzarella cheese. Return the meatballs with the bottom half of the biscuits to the oven for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Top with the other half of the biscuit and serve.
