Sliders are great for feeding a crowd and are especially kid friendly. These beef and mushroom sliders are a little on the spicy side, but you can definitely omit the red pepper flakes if you want to keep things on the mild side.
Yield: Makes 12
4 oz white button mushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb lean ground beef
1/3 cup bread crumbs
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp +1/4 cup barbecue sauce
½ tsp red pepper flakes (can omit)
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
In a food processor, process mushrooms and garlic.
In a large bowl, combine mushroom mixture with beef, bread crumbs, parsley, egg, 2 tbsp barbecue sauce and red pepper flakes. Using a standard ice cream scoop, scoop mixture into 12 even meatballs. Brush with remaining ¼ cup of barbecue sauce.
Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes or until fully cooked.
