Meatball Sub Sliders
An easy slow cooker potluck or party food recipe
meatball sliders, potluck recipe, sliders
footlong sub rolls
(more if needed)
fully cooked frozen meatballs, thawed
(1 lb, or 20 count bag)
shredded mozzarella cheese
Pour sauce into slow cooker. If using my
semi-homemade tomato sauce
recipe, combine all sauce ingredients in the slow cooker.
Add frozen meatballs and stir with a spatula to coat with the sauce. Add more sauce as needed if it doesn't seem like the meatballs are all well-coated.
Cook on high for 20 to 30 minutes. (Check after 15 minutes. If sauce is popping or splattering a lot, reduce to low.)
Stir in shredded mozzarella.
Reduce slow cooker to warm setting. (If yours doesn't have a warm setting, low is fine.)
Cut the sub rolls into slider-sized pieces that will fit one meatball each.
Stir the meatballs to make sure cheese is distributed fairly evenly. Once cheese is melted, place one meatball onto each slider roll.
If you are using the meatballs frozen instead of thawed, cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
