Meatball Subs Sliders

 1 lb. ground beef

1 lb. Italian sausage

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 tablespoon dried parsley)

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 ¼ cup Italian bread crumbs

2 eggs, beaten

¾ cup milk

1 tablespoon oil

1 pkg. Jr. Buns or Jr. Vienna buns (12 buns)

2 cups marinara sauce (or spaghetti sauce)

2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons Olive oil

3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 

Preheat oven to 400-degrees F. 

 In a large bowl, combine ground beef, Italian sausage, garlic, parsley, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, eggs, and milk.  Mix until thoroughly combine.

 Roll the mixture into 1 ½-2” diameter meatballs.  Place meatballs on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven and let rest.  Lower oven temperature to 350-degrees F.

Place bottoms of bun face-up on a baking sheet and bake in 350-degree oven for about 4-5 minutes, just until bread is a bit toasted.  Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes.  Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.  Place bottoms of buns in bottom of baking dish.  Spoon a little marinara sauce on each bottom bun.  Top with one meatball per bun.  Top with a little more marinara sauce, then top with shredded mozzarella cheese.  

Place the tops on each sandwich.  Lightly brush the tops with olive oil.  Combine 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese with 1 tablespoons Italian seasoning and sprinkle over the tops of each sandwich. 

Bake in oven for 15 minutes.  Remove and enjoy!
