BBQ Meatball Sliders

Yield 12 to 14 slider sandwiches


For the Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground beef (I like 85/15)
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3 Tbsp skim milk
  • 3/4 cup Favorite BBQ Sauce

For the Coleslaw:

  • 3 cups shredded cabbage mix
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp celery seed
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp each Salt & Pepper

Additional Ingredients:

  • Cooking Spray
  • 12 dinner rolls or slider buns


  1. FOR THE COLESLAW (Prepare first): Toss the cabbage and scallions with the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seed & sugar; season with salt and pepper. Allow to macerate & break down in the fridge while you make the meatballs.
  2. FOR THE MEATBALLS: Combine all ingredients, except the BBQ sauce in a large bowl. Line a baking sheet with foil & spray with cooking spray. Form meatballs (about 2 Tbsp each) & place onto prepared baking sheet (makes about 12-14 meatballs.) Bake at 400*F for 15-16 minutes, or until no longer pink. Heat BBQ sauce in a large saucepan, add baked meatballs & gently fold/toss in the sauce. Remove from heat when it boils/sizzles.
  3. TO ASSEMBLE: Place a saucy meatball on the slider bun and top with fresh coleslaw.
