Mozzarella Stuffed Meatball Sliders

Meatball sliders get the all-star treatment with a twist here (and a twist there) from a McCormick® Italian Blend Herb Grinder. When prepping, season directly into meatballs and sauce for zesty Italian flavor. Before taking a bite into the gooey mozzarella center, top with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese and an extra twist of herbs. Recipe courtesy of Buzzfeed.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix ground beef, ground pork, eggs, onion, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, and desired amount of Italian blend herb grinder in large bowl until well blended. Shape into 12 meatballs.

  • Press 1 mozzarella cheese cube into the center of each meatball, forming meatball around the cheese to completely enclose it. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish. Pour sauce over meatballs. Twist Italian blend herb grinder over meatballs.

  • Bake 30 to 45 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Serve meatballs on slider rolls with additional Italian blend herb grinder. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tip: Not sure how much Italian Blend Herb Grinder to add? Try grinding 20 twists (2 teaspoons) to the meat mixture and 10 twists (1 teaspoon) to the sauce.
