Whew! After 14 hours of flying, I’m back and sooo excited to be with my kids again. It’s was hard leaving paradise but all good things must come to an end.

I was looking for a way to use some meatballs I had left over from my 3-Ingredient Sweet and Sour Meatballs and thought these Meatball Sliders would be perfect Super Bowl food. Meatballs tossed in a little marinara sauce, topped with cheese, and toasted to perfection in the oven. You can even use hot dog buns (I like Martin’s) cut in thirds for slider buns which makes this appetizer super affordable.

Meatball Sliders: Super Bowl Food


  • 24 frozen meatballs thawed
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 8 ounces sliced provolone or mozzarella
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 24 dinner rolls or 8 hot dog buns cut in thirds


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9X13 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Warm the meatballs in the marinara sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. Separate the dinner rolls or hot dog buns and place one saucy meatball on the bottom roll. Top with mozzarella or provolone. Place the top roll on and push down slightly. Place meatball slider in the pan and continue to assemble the rest of the sliders.
  3. Microwave butter in a bowl in the microwave until melted. Add garlic powder and Italian seasonings and mix well. Brush tops of buns with melted butter mixture.
  4. Toast in oven for 8-10 minutes or until toasted. I like mine a little more on the soft side...not so toasty.
