Garlic Bread Stuffed Meatball Sliders


  I have made quite a few meatball recipes of the years. Like these, these, these and these just to name a few. Which are some of my favorites. I can now add these stuffed ones to the list!                     They were delish and a hit with the family and a super easy weeknight meal.                       
                


I feel like anytime you hear somethings stuffed it just peaks instant curiosity and makes it taste that much better.


Then I had to jazz it up even more with turning plain dinner rolls into garlic bread.


.......................................................................................................................................................

Ingredients
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 
1/8 cup ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons milk
1 large egg 
1 tablespoon grated onion 
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained well
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon pepper 
12 1 inch pieces of cubed mozzarella
3 cups of your "go to" tomato sauce
12 (1 ounce) slices provolone cheese
12 dinner rolls 
1 stick of melted butter
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder

Directions

Combine first 12 ingredients; shape into 2-inch balls (golf ball size) place a piece of cubed mozzarella inside each meatball and roll back together.

Brown meatballs in a large skillet over medium heat pressing down slightly and cook  3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Preheat your oven to 350 degree F.

While the meatballs are cooking slice the dinner rolls in half and place the bottoms in a 13x9 inch dish. Cover the rolls with 1/2 of the tomato sauce. Add the meatballs top each one with the remaining sauce and the provolone cheese. Add the tops of the dinner rolls. 

To the melted butter add the Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Mix well and brush the tops of the rolls. Bake uncovered 10 minutes until the rolls are nice and toasty.
