Smaller than a meatball sub but with just as much flavor, meatball sliders are the perfect go-to dinner choice for busy families. Have a casual family dinner at home without sacrificing taste with Italian flavors that the entire family will enjoy.

National Meatball Day is on Thursday, March 9, 2017. As we all know, Thursdays are school and work nights. I always have limited time to get dinner on the table on nights such as this, but these easy meatball sliders take less than 30 minutes to make. On nights like these, I grab convenient dinner products to maximize my time. Cooked Perfect Meatballs have always been a family favorite. They are made with select meats, real cheeses, and savory herbs and spices. Cooked Perfect Meatballs are then flame-broiled to make sure that each meatball is delicious. Cooked Perfect Meatballs offer a wide variety of flavors, including Italian Style, Homestyle, Angus Beef, Turkey, Chicken, Sweet Italian, and Swedish. The Italian Style is also available in a gluten-free variety.

Begin by following the directions on the back of the Cooked Perfect Meatballs package to heat one half of the Italian Style meatballs in a large pot with the marinara.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

While the Cooked Perfect Meatballs are heating, make the garlic butter rub.

In a small bowl, melt the unsalted butter in a microwaveable bowl. Stir in the garlic powder and Italian seasoning. The mixture will be thick.

Cut each roll in half, separating the top from the bottom.

Once the Cooked Perfect Meatballs and marinara are heated through, place the roll bottoms on a baking sheet. Place on Cooked Perfect Meatball on each roll bottom.

Place the top of the roll on each slider. Using a silicone brush or the back of a spoon, rub the garlic butter mixture onto the top of each roll.

Heat the sliders in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
