Meatball Sliders

Ingredients for 12 servings

12 slider buns

1 pound ground beef

6 slices of Extra Mature Cheddar

1 onion

1 clove of garlic

3 sprigs of thyme

1 can chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper, to season

3 tablespoons olive oil

Lettuce

Mayonnaise

Meatball Sliders

Preparation

Form the ground beef into 12 balls. Season with salt and pepper. In a pan, fry the meatballs in a little oil for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the pan.

 

Sauté the finely chopped garlic and onions in the olive oil until clear. Add the tomatoes and cook through for 5 minutes. Season to taste with thyme, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Blend the sauce using a handheld blender, return the meatballs to the sauce and heat through for about 5 minutes over medium heat.

Cut the cheese into quarters and place two 1/4 slices on each meatball. Pop the pan in a pre-heated oven for 2 minutes until the cheese has melted. 

Spread the slider buns with mayonnaise on the top and bottom. Place a lettuce leaf on each bottom bun, then add the meatballs with cheese. Pour a little extra sauce from the pan over each slider.
