In this easy meatball appetizer, meatballs are tossed in sweet BBQ sauce before being topped with cheddar cheese, sautéed onions, and crispy bacon! To finish off these meatball sliders, they're then sandwiched between sweet Hawaiian rolls.
12large cooked meatballs, frozen or homemade
1 1/2cupssweet BBQ sauce
1medium yellow onion, sliced
dash of Worcestershire
sprinkle of sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
If using frozen meatballs, place meatballs in medium saucepan with BBQ sauce. Place over medium heat to heat through (about 15-20 minutes). If using homemade meatballs, toss cooked meatballs in BBQ sauce. Set aside.
Cook diced bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain bacon on paper towels to remove excess grease.
Place sliced onion in skillet used for bacon and cook until they are translucent and begin to caramelize, about 8 minutes.
Slice Hawaiian rolls in half and place bottom half on bottom of rectangular baking pan. Place cooked bbq meatballs on top of bottom half of the rolls. Top with slices of cheddar cheese.
Top cheese with cooked bacon and onions. Top sliders with top half of the rolls.
Melt butter in small bowl. Add a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce to butter and stir. Spread melted butter over the tops of the rolls and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Place meatball sliders in preheated oven to heat through and melt the cheese, about 10-13 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cool 5 minutes before serving.
Note: you may need to cut the slices of cheese to make them fit perfectly over meatballs.
