Saucy Meatball Sliders

Saucy Meatball Sliderswith Classic Caesar Salad

We’re meatball-obsessed on a regular day, but when Chef Elana whipped up her moist and flavorful version of meatball sliders in the test kitchen, our obsession was taken to new levels. These adorable little crowd-pleasers are made with crispy breadcrumbs and creamy ricotta for a lovely texture that suits simple marinara. They are saucy, slightly messy, and ridiculously tasty sandwiched between split brioche buns—we may have swooned a little. Served with a classic Caesar salad of romaine hearts, this encore dish is a party you don’t want to miss.
