Hawaiian roll meatball sliders with a parsley garnish

Easy Hawaiian Roll Meatball Sliders Recipe


The best easy + cheesy Hawaiian roll meatball sliders recipe! These mini baked meatball sliders are perfect for parties or game day.


Units Scale
  • 12 oz. Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 16 oz. frozen Italian meatballs (larger size works well so there is one per slider)
  • 12 cups marinara sauce*
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese slices


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9×13 pan with foil.
  2. Prepare meatballs according to package instructions. (Can be done any way, they just need to be cooked and hot.)
  3. Keeping the buns intact, cut Hawaiian rolls in half lengthwise carefully so they stay together.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together melted butter and garlic salt.
  5. Place one meatball onto each bun section of the sweet rolls. Top with marinara sauce and layer with cheese slices so they cover the whole bottom section.
  6. Top with top bun section and brush with garlic butter.
  7. Bake sliders for 13-16 minutes, or until cheese is melted and buns are golden brown.


  • See suggestions above for ingredient swaps and variations. 
  • *Use 1-2 cups of marinara, depending on how saucy you want them. Some readers have found 2 cups (as originally written) too much so use your best judgement.
