Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.

  • Place pork, salt, peppers, pickling liquid, bread, and eggs in a large bowl; using your hands, mix until well combined. Form pork mixture into firmly packed 2-inch meatballs. Place on prepared baking sheet and arrange the meatballs in rows so that they are touching on all sides.

  • Transfer to oven and roast until cooked through, about 14 to 20 minutes. Let meatballs cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before removing.

  • Meanwhile, heat meat sauce in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cooked meatballs to sauce; cook until sauce and meatballs are heated through. Place 1 meatball on bottom half of each slider bun and top with 1 tablespoon meat sauce. Sandwich with top half of bun and secure with a toothpick; serve.

we really enjoyed these...although i was way to particular about the amount of fat in my ground pork so it took a while. the hot cherry peppers were very hot so we used a little bit less than 1/3 cup. i made some meatballs for my children before i added the peppers and the liquid to the mix. spicy meat sauce was easy and good, too. i doubled the recipe to freeze some for another night.
