I found this recipe from Jessica at www.howsweeteats.com  She’s got some great recipes on her site! Now if I could just get her to co-host on Featured Friday’s…hmmm…..anyways I plan on making this because I have dinner rolls I don’t know what to do with and I’ve always wanted to make sliders!! So why not! Click Here for a picture detail of this recipe.

Ingredients:

makes about 15 meatballs

2 pounds lean ground beef (I have ground turkey breast)
1 egg
2 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup romano cheese
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
4 ounces of mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes + more for topping
3 cups of your favorite pasta sauce
12-15 slider buns (or dinner rolls if you cannot find them)                   
basil for garnish/topping

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, add ground beef, egg, oil, cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt, pepper, basil and parsley. Mix to combine, gently tossing a few times with your hands. Don’t overmix – it will result in tough meatballs! Spray a large baking dish with non-stick spray and add 2 cups of pasta sauce. Roll beef into golfball-sized meatballs (about 3 tablespoons of beef), and press a cube of mozzarella in the middle. Seal the beef around the chees and set in sauce. Once all meatballs have been added, sprinkle additional cheese and breadcrumbs over top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through. Serve with additional sauce if desired, toasted slider buns, and a few slabs of mozzarella for topping.
