Meatball Sliders

Meatballs are kind of a big thing in this house and they are the only form of hamburger meat my middle daughter will eat, which is just absolutely crazy in my opinion.  This is also a simple, delicious, quick and they were gone in minutes.  

1 pound Italian Sausage
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup onion, grated
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/3 Parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 24-ounce jars marinara sauce
dinner rolls, for serving
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl, combine the onion, garlic, parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, eggs, milk, red pepper, flakes, oregano, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir to combine thoroughly before adding the meat.
Then add the meat to the breadcrumb mixture.
Form the meatballs, using the size of your dinner rolls as a guide. I made mine a little bigger than a golf ball.
Preheat oven 350* and bake meatballs for 20 minutes or until done.

While Meatballs are cooking broil or toast your buns.

While the meatballs cook, heat up the marinara sauce in a saucepan on medium heat.
After the meatballs are cooked through, remove them from the oven and place them into the hot marinara sauce.
Lower the heat and simmer the meatballs for another 15 minutes.

Place one meatball onto each bun, and top each meatball with a generous sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.
Broil them at 400 degrees F for 3-5 minutes, just until the cheese is melted.
Place a bun top onto each slider, then serve.
