Italian Meatball Sliders are the perfect weeknight dinner because they come together quickly, pack a huge punch of flavor, and are so easy to make! By using Cooked Perfect® Meatballs you save yourself a ton of time, but don’t sacrifice any of the flavor. You only need a few other ingredients to make these Italian Meatball Sliders, and it’s likely you have everything in your fridge or pantry already!
Now, if y’all follow Domestic Superhero, you KNOW that I LOVE sliders! Sliders are such a fun food, and they are usually pretty easy to make. I have several different sliders recipes on Domestic Superhero, so I was really excited to add a meatball slider recipe to my list! Like I mentioned earlier, by using Cooked Perfect Meatballs, you save yourself a TON of time. They come frozen and all you need to do is heat them through – they’re perfect!
Find Cooked Perfect Meatballs in the freezer section of your local grocery store. They are the tastiest meatballs because of their quality ingredients and crafted, flame-broiled cooking process. They come in several different varieties, and while I used the Italian style for this recipe, you could also make these sliders using the Gluten Free Italian Style, Homestyle, Angus Beef, Turkey, or Sweet Italian Meatballs (YUM).
Italian Meatball Sliders are SO simple to make. All you need to do is cook up some onions, add the Cooked Perfect Frozen Italian Meatballs, add some marinara sauce, then simmer them until cooked through….about 15 minutes. Next, get your slider buns and put the bottoms into a glass baking dish. Top the bottom of the buns with the cooked meatballs, then top with mozzarella cheese slices. You are going to add the bun tops, then brush melted butter over the top. Once you are done with that, sprinkle some parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes over the top. Cover these bad boys with foil, and then bake for about 15 minutes. SO YUM!
