Cheesy Meatball Sliders

Cheesy Meatball Sliders 7

It’s March madness at my house. I think it’s my husband’s favorite time of year, college basketball. I like to make dinners that he can eat while he watches the games. Sliders are a great choice for game watching. Add lots of cheese and they are perfect! I decided to stuff these with cheese as well as top them with cheese. These are super cheesy meatball sliders. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. GO UD! πŸ™‚

You’ll need:
2 pounds of ground beef chuck
3 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 teaspoon dry basil
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese (3/4 cup – 1/4 cup)
1 cup grated parmesan or romano cheese
4 string cheese sticks, each cut into 4ths
4 cups of red sauce, use your favorite spaghetti sauce (2 1/2 cups – 1 1/2 cups)
slider buns
