Good sliders. Pesto / tomato sauce was unique and was good on the meatballs.

Made these for the game today. It was nice I could make them the day before and just reheat and serve.

Luv for meatballs never ends! I was actually searching for this recipe since a long time... but this preparation method looks easy and simple.. I recently ordered meatballs from an online site for my house warming party which looked almost same as this! Here's the link to it, https://www.appetizersusa.com/italian-meatball-parmesan-skewer_8_109_26223.html. Will try this recipe and will share my views on it! Thanks :)
