My 16 yr. old grandson made these sliders tonight and except for substituting Italian seasoning for the fennel seeds, he followed the recipe exactly. His Dad ate 6 of them and we ate the rest and everyone said they were THE BEST. Served them with baked beans and iced tea - YUM!

This recipe was a hit, though I used premade meetballs because I was making so many of the sliders. Very easy and quick to make. I have already made it two or three times in the last several months. I'm telling you, they like it!
