Pull-apart Meatball Sliders

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 4-6


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 beef meatballs
  • 12 small bread rolls 
  • 100g tomato pasta sauce
  • 100g grated mozzarella
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 20g grated parmesan


Step 1: First, preheat the oven to 180C/ 160C fan/ gas 4. Next, in a large pan heat the oil and fry the meatballs for approximately 8-10 minutes. Set to one side. 

Step 2: Carefully split all of the rolls through the middle ensuring that the whole batch of bread rolls remains attached at their sides. Following this, place the bottom of the rolls in a large baking tray line with baking parchment or foil. Next, spread the tomato sauce over then place one meatball on every roll. Pour over some mozzarella, then cover with the tops of the rolls and press down gently. 

Step 3: Brush the tops of the buns with the melted butter and sprinkle over the oregano and parmesan. Cover the tray with foil and bake for 20 minutes, remembering to un-cover for the last 5 minutes so that the top turns golden!
