Downsizing the larger Juicy Lucy burgers to a game day size. The meatballs are moist but as with the burgers, be careful of the hot cheese inside!
Juicy Lucy Meatball Sliders
1# extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 large egg
1/4 cup onion, diced fine
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3 cheddar cheese snack sticks, cut into 1/2" square pieces
Place all the ingredients into a medium bowl except the cheese. Roll meatballs, flatten and tuck a cheese block in the center and wrap the meat around it. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°. Serve on cocktail sized buns (I toasted mine) and with all your favorite hamburger toppings.
