Mini Meatball Sliders

· 2 pounds ground round
· ½ cup panko or Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
· ½ cup skim milk
· 1 teaspoon garlic powder
· 1 teaspoon onion powder
· ½ teaspoon salt
· ½ teaspoon pepper
· 4 tablespoons olive oil
· ½ onion, chopped fine
· 1 24-ounce marinara sauce
· 24 dinner rolls (Martin Potato Dinner Rolls, recommended)
· 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

1. Combine beef, breadcrumbs, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Combine mixture with your hands. Shape into tablespoon size balls (mixture should make about 24 mini meatballs).
2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Remove onions to a plate.
3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the meatballs. Cook the meatballs until they are completely browned all over.
4. Pour the marinara sauce into the skillet with the meatballs and add the onion. Stir together and simmer about 15-20 minutes over low heat.
5. When serving, split the rolls, add a meatball and sauce. Top the meatball with mozzarella cheese. Serve immediately.
