Cook Time

These pork meatball sliders are not to be missed. It’s like a traditional meatball sub, but so much more satisfying. The game-changer is removing the center of the bread (and then toasting and using it for croutons later) so the meatball pops right in. Just the right amount of bread, and a perfectly made meatball slathered in sauce, and topped with melty cheese. Perfect for any occasion that warrants a comforting, cozy, and take you right back to home bite.
