Spicy Meatballs/Meatball Sliders

You'll need -
1 lb Ground Sirlion
16 oz of Tomato Marinara (homemade or store bought)
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Package of Onion Soup Mix
2 Cloves of Fresh Garlic (minced)
Crushed Red Pepper
Salt & Pepper

Directions -

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the beef, egg, parmesan cheese, onion soup mix, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt & pepper in a mixing bowl. Form the meat mixture into meatballs. I make pretty large meatballs and usually get 6. Brown the meatballs in a pan on the stove before adding to a glass baking dish with the marinara. If you are using store bought I usually like to add some fresh herbs, garlic, and crushed red pepper to liven it up a bit. Bake covered for about 30 mintues. Remove cover and bake for 5 more mintures to get rid of any extra moisture in the sauce. Let them sit about 5 minture before serving.

I like them alone, with a side of green beans or served on top of spaghetti or ravioli! Try them with any of your favorite pastas!

They also make great meatball sliders

Pick up slider buns or small dinner rolls from the store. Coat the top bun with a little butter and minced garlic and lightly toast in the oven until golden...think garlic bread! Add a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and serve on the toasted and garlicy bun!
