Cheesy biscuit meatball sliders are great for dinner on the go, football party appetizers, or an after school snack!

Ready in just a few minutes, meatball sliders are sure to become a family favorite!

THE BEST and easy meatball sliders made with canned biscuits and pre-cooked Italian or turkey meatballs for a quick and easy lunch, dinner, or appetizer! Serve with spaghetti or pizza sauce on the side for dipping.

School is back in session and that means life just got a lot busier! We are often eating meals on the go so I love recipes that are easy, ready in about 30 minutes and are portable.  Sandwiches are always a great option for dinner, but they can get a little boring and routine.

So I decided to liven dinner up with some fun meatball sliders!  You can grab all these ingredients at keep them on hand for a quick and easy dinner when your schedule gets busy.

Cheesy Biscuit Meatball Sliders

To make the biscuit meatball sliders you will need canned biscuits, mozzarella cheese, frozen meatballs that are thawed, melted butter, spices and marinara or pizza sauce for dipping.

I opted to keep the sauce on the outside of the slider. This way the dough doesn’t get soggy. Plus, kids love to dip their food!

We used Cooked Perfect® Meatballs Gluten Free Italian Meatballs to make the sliders. I always have a bag of pre-cooked meatballs in the freezer because they are perfect for a quick dinner and they taste just like homemade! Some of our favorites are Sloppy Joe Meatball Subs and Meatball Lasagna.

Cooked Perfect Meatballs come in a wide variety of meatball styles like Homestyle, Angus Beef and Turkey and are available in the freezer aisle of your grocery store!

Working with one biscuit at a time, flatten a biscuit using a wide bottom cup or canning jar.  Flatten the biscuit wide enough so it will cover a meatball.

Place about a teaspoon of shredded mozzarella cheese and a thawed meatball in the center of the flattened biscuit. I tried both whole and half a meatball and I preferred the whole meatball. The whole one gives the sliders more substance.

Carefully fold the rest of the biscuit dough around the meatball. The dough is pretty resilient so it’s not hard to do.  Pinch the dough together so it completely encases the meatball and cheese.

Repeat with each biscuit in the can. Usually there are 8 biscuits per can. I have no idea why I only made 6 because they were gone in a flash!

Place the biscuit wrapped meatballs on a baking sheet, leaving a little space in between each slider.  Brush on melted butter, a sprinkle of garlic salt and a little bit of dried basil.

Bake according to the directions on the biscuit can. Let the sliders get nice and brown on top, but be careful that the bottoms don’t burn.

Serve the meatball sliders with a side of marinara or pizza sauce for dipping. I like the pizza sauce because it’s a little thicker. Keeping the sauce on the side, rather inside the sliders, keeps the biscuit dough from getting soggy!
