Monster Meatball Sliders make for the perfect spooky meal or appetizer to celebrate the Halloween season with. Sandwich your favorite meatball recipe (or buy pre-made meatballs in a pinch) in between some slider rolls, add some cheesy “teeth” and finish these monsters off with sliced olive “eyeballs.” These sliders are quick to make, kid and adult friendly, filling, and festive!

These spooky Halloween appetizers are fun, filling, and easy to make!
- 1 bag frozen Italian meatballs (OR see the recipe notes for my favorite homemade meatballs!)
- 1 jar (24 ounces) high quality marinara sauce
- 24 dinner rolls
- 1 block (16 ounces) mozzarella cheese, separated
- 1/2 of 1 jar black olives, sliced
Prepare the meatballs according to package directions (or follow the link in the recipe notes and follow directions to make those meatballs!)
Combine the cooked meatballs with the marinara sauce. Meanwhile, cut 48 teeth out of the block of mozzarella cheese (or however many sliders you are making) Grate the rest of the cheese to get about 1 cup.
When ready to serve, halve the dinner rolls and sprinkle some shredded mozzarella on the bottom rolls. Top each with the hot marinara covered meatballs, more sauce, and the top of the sandwich roll.
Thinly slice olives and attach one slice to a toothpick. Insert the toothpick in the top of the sliders. Press the cut out mozzarella teeth to the meatballs. Serve immediately.
