Italian Sliders


I was making Italian meatballs the other night and decided on forming them into mini-burgers or “Sliders” instead.  Very good choice!


  • 2 pounds ground meat
  • 5 ounces freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 16 dinner rolls


Throw everything into a large bowl and stick your hands in there and mix ‘er up.


Form these into large meatballs. I tried to make 16 but some of mine got bigger so only 14 here.


Now take each ball and squish it down to a patty.


Place these little patties on a broiler pan so that the fat falls to the pan below.  Stick this into a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.


I like a little mayonnaise on my bun and then some extra parmesan cheese on the meat.  Maranara sauce would also be pretty awesome on this too.

  1. They look really delicious. I’d add English mustard with mine. So scrummy. My tummy’s rumbling but it’s so late, can’t be eating sliders. Should be sleeping rather! Pinning to drool over later on 😉
