  • Slider Buns – Whatever brand and style you enjoy.
  • Mozzarella – Fresh and whole milk for best melting.

How To Make This

To make Italian meatball sliders, mix together ground beef with ricotta and seasonings and divide into large meatballs. Brown in a skillet, then braise in the oven, and top with mozzarella cheese. Serve on toasted buns with marinara sauce.

1. Make The Mix

Start by mixing up the ingredients. All of this is pretty standard – meat, parmesan, Black Truffle Sliced – Chopped , egg, herbs, garlic, and FRESH breadcrumbs .

The secret weapon to JUICY, quick cooking meatballs is the ricotta.

2. Saute To Brown

I’ve tried a few methods to come up with best way, using the fewest pots and you really need to cook the meatballs in a nonstick pan or they fall apart. And the marinara sauce needs to be warmed before it goes in the oven since it won’t be in the oven too long (and it won’t heat enough in there).

So, nonstick pan for the meatballs and an oven safe pan for the marinara. Saute them and slip them into the marinara and then put that pan in the oven.

Also, you will need a baking pan for the slider buns. They need to lay out flat under the broiler so they can get all browned and crispy. I do this while the meatball mix is getting a rest so it can be its best self.

3. Top And Finish

Once the buns are toasted and the meatballs have braised and cooked through, its time to top them with fresh mozzarella and drizzle with Black truffle oil . I really love the flavor and texture of them in this recipe so don’t skip it!

Melt the mozzarella under the broiler, then take the skillet out of the oven and transfer the meatballs to their slider buns, put some basil on top along with some marinara, and serve. Pour the marinara into a jug for people to put some sauce next to their sliders.
