Easy Meatball Sliders
These cheesy Easy Meatball Sliders are an easy game day appetizer recipe that the whole family will love!
With the Big Game coming up, this week is all about what to feed your friends and family on game day. We always have a ton of people over for a party on game day, there is nothing better than cheering on your team with good friends, and of course food! Since we have so many people to feed I try to put a few dishes on the menu that use a common ingredient so I can buy it in bulk and save a little money.

Let’s start with the main event, my meatball sliders are a favorite at parties and they are perfect for game day. One look at those cheesy bites of delicious, saucy, meatballs, and you just want to dig in! They are super easy to make too. Just put the bottoms of your slider rolls in a casserole dish and cover them with sauce. Next add your cooked meatballs (and a little more sauce because you can never have enough!). Then top them with lots of mozzarella cheese. Place the top slider buns over the meatballs and brush them with olive oil and sprinkle them with mixture of Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 10 minutes covered, then remove the foil and continue baking for another 10 minutes. You end up with mini meatball subs oozing with stringy mozzarella cheese. These are one of my all time favorite party foods and I usually have to make a double batch because I can’t eat just one!
What goes better with subs than pizza, am I right? With some of the extra ingredients I can whip up some simple French Bread Pizza Sticks I showed you yesterday. The great thing about pizza is that everyone loves it, young or old, and you can customize it to fit all different tastes. That’s important now that game days involve kids and adults!
Speaking of kids they always request that I make these Pizza Wontons when we’re having people over. They are really easy to make and there is nothing better than crunching into a wonton filled with gooey cheese, pepperoni, and sauce. Yum!
