Spicy Meatball Sliders with Quick Pickled Cabbage

I know you’re all familiar with meatball sliders. There’s a good reason for their popularity. They’re GOOD. Really good. I can’t even say the name without wanting one, and now (you guessed it) I want one! I have little to no willpower when it comes to foods that I love. It’s the reason I exercise. The only reason. Because I like to eat. I’m not one of those people who LOVES to exercise. I wish I was but nope I dread it but I suck it up and do it.  I may or may not even think about what I’m going to eat for lunch while I’m doing said exercise. Sad but true.

Whenever I’m making a batch of meatballs I hedge my bet and make extra. On most nights I can’t count on having any leftover from a regular batch because they’re meat-a-balls and everyone in da family loves them. Those extra meatballs (that I hide immediately, yes I have no shame) are placed into the fridge so I can have a meatball sandwich or slider the following day. Now these aren’t just your regular run of the mill sandwich shop meatball sliders here. These sliders are dare I say sophisticated and is going to knock the football pants off all your friends and family.

It’s always about the food people. And okay the people with you, that’s important too. Food and people and the pigskin for some.  Sigh.
