Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Baking Sheets
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Small Pot

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Start the Fries

    Start the Fries

    Cut potato into ¼" sticks. Place on one prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer and bake until lightly browned, 20 minutes, tossing fries halfway through. Remove from oven. Fries will finish cooking in a later step. While fries bake, prepare meatballs.

  • Step 2 - Form and Fill the Meatballs

    Form and Fill the Meatballs

    Thoroughly combine ground beef, panko, half the Parmesan cheese (reserve remaining for fries), ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Divide into six equal-sized balls. Press your thumb into center of each ball and place a mozzarella ball into the well. Close meat around mozzarella, re-form into a ball, and place on one side of second prepared baking sheet. Form a tight seal so cheese stays inside meatball.

  • Step 3 - Roast Meatballs and Toast Buns

    Roast Meatballs and Toast Buns

    Roast meatballs until lightly browned, 20-25 minutes. Don't worry if cheese leaks out of meatballs while roasting. Carefully, place slider buns on other half of baking sheet and bake until buns are toasted and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 2-3 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Finish the Fries

    Finish the Fries

    After fries have cooked 20 minutes, toss again. Continue baking until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with most of remaining Parmesan (reserve a pinch for garnish).

  • Step 5 - Heat the Sauce

    Heat the Sauce

    Add pizza sauce to a small pot and place over medium heat. Bring sauce to a gentle boil, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner.

  • Step 6 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Spoon sauce on bottom slider bun and place meatball in sauce. Top with a spoonful of sauce and garnish with reserved Parmesan. Top with top bun. Serve alongside Parmesan fries.
