Mini Meatball Sliders Recipe- Easy Appetizer

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details.

When hosting parties at my house I love to make one item in my Crock Pot. It not only frees up the oven, but it also means I can start preparing way in advance. For an appetizer I made meatballs. I was just going to serve them as meatballs when hubby came up with a great idea!

Mini Meatball Sliders


Frozen Meatballs (Or Homemade Meatballs)
Marinara Sauce
Dinner Rolls
Mozzarella Cheese


Place the frozen meatballs in a slow cooker. Poor marinara sauce over top. Cook on high for 3.5 hours.

Place two meatballs on each roll. Add cheese. Place under broiler to melt cheese.
